In a heart-warming collaboration that showcases the power of community and innovation, students from the Business Department at MK College's Bletchley campus have made a remarkable impact by raising funds and awareness for Age UK Milton Keynes.

Demonstrating resourcefulness and a strong entrepreneurial spirit, the students organized a cake sale and scavenger hunt, starting with no initial funds. Their efforts culminated in a successful event that not only raised £53 but also inspired additional donations, ultimately doubling the amount to £110.

The event was a significant success, raising £53 on the day. Following the event, generous supporters from both MK College and Age UK Milton Keynes matched the amount, doubling the total funds raised to £110.
