Students at East Norfolk Sixth Form College have been raising money for local club, Saturday Superstars.

Saturday Superstars is a local, inclusive club for children and young adults who have a range of Learning Disabilities, some members having additional Sensory Impairment or Physical Disabilities. The club provides a chance to socialise with friends, develop and celebrate strengths and talents. Among the popular activities they organise are arts, crafts, cookery, indoor and outdoor games, a summer outing and Christmas party.  

The Student Association organised various events over the last academic year including an end of term party with a “sponge a teacher” session and BBQ. There was a lot of support from the students who were keen to help the club because they receive no government funding and rely on fundraising such as this. All staff are volunteers and the students have gained valuable experience by joining the team.

In addition, to celebrate World Autism Awareness week, EN an Autism Awareness event to enable the college community to learn about the challenges and reality of autism. The learning support department raised money through a cake sale and other activities. Funds raised were also donated to Saturday Superstars.

Liam Roderick from Saturday Superstars was treated to a VIP tour of the College and then presented with a cheque for £303.
