Open Study College raised over £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support

This donation will make a real difference to those who have been affected in some way by cancer.

Birmingham-based distance learning specialists Open Study College have smashed their charity fundraising target for the year.

Staff and students have raised over £10,000, and this sum will help with the provision of nurses, carers and other services provided by Macmillan Cancer Support.

The college donates £1 every time a new student enrols. The increasing number of students choosing to study via distance learning instead of a classroom-based course has helped to make 2013 their most successful charity fundraising campaign so far.

Samantha Rutter, Centre Director, commented: "We are thrilled to have donated a record amount this year."

"This donation will make a real difference to those who have been affected in some way by cancer."

"We are grateful to our students who collectively raised an additional £1,300, as this will really make a difference in supporting Macmillan's excellent work."
