Student Conor’s on the ball with charity effort
A teenager from R u t h e rg l e n h a s raised over £ 350 for a children’s charity as part of a college assignment.
Conor Campbell ( 19), of Cityford Crescent, is studying a HND in Media and Communications at City of Glasgow College.
As part of the graded unit exam in his course, students must choose a sector of the media and create a folio of work.
The former Tri n i t y High pupil picked PR and advertising and decided to host a charity event in aid of Yorkhill Children’s Charity.
However the college course wasn’t the only reason he wanted to do something for Yorkhill. He had previously attended Yorkhill when he was a child due to skin problems, and wanted to give something back to the charity who cared for him.
Conor organised a charity football tournament and raffle at Fernhill Community Centre at the end of May. He decided to do this after conducting research on what would be the best charity endeavour to pick.
The day was well attended, with Conor’s team winning the football tournament 5-3 on penalties.
The final total raised was £355.
He said: “The day went really well and everything went according to plan. Everyone showed up and there was a good small crowd of friends and family there to watch.
“The weather was great and I ended up raising £355 in aid of Yorkhill Children’s Charity.
“Also I managed to pass my Graded Unit through this event gaining my HND qualification.
“A big thanks to everyone who took part and donated.”
