Reading College takes part in Armed Forces Day
On Saturday, Reading College took part in Reading’s Armed Forces at Forbury Gardens.
Students were on hand to help The Trooper Potts VC Memorial Trust sell cakes to raise funds for a bronze statue of Reading hero Trooper Fred Potts.
Visitors to the gardens could choose from a choice of Victoria sponge, carrot, chocolate, coffee and walnut or lemon drizzle cake!
Students raised £632 for the Trust, who has pledged 10% to Help for Heroes. This is a huge increase on last year’s total of £214!
Thank you to students and staff that volunteered to help on the day!
