A group of college students raised funds for a trip to Dubai.

Students at New City College’s Epping Forest campus organised a Christmas fete, raising £200 in the process.

All of the students who are studying for qualifications in travel and aviation at the Loughton based campus are heading to Dubai in March next year as part of their course, giving a taste of life in the travel and aviation industry.

Staff and students enjoyed fun activities including a raffle and traditional Christmas games including pin the nose on the reindeer, guess the amount of sweets in the jar and best decorated Christmas biscuit.

Simone Butler, lecturer in travel and aviation at New City College, said: “Everybody had great fun and it really shows how determined the students were to raise funds for their trip and also helped to grow their business and team working skills.”
