Business students take to the dance floor for Comic Relief

March 6 2014



Students will be raving mad if a dance event doesn’t raise hundreds of pounds for a global charity.

A group from Glyndŵr University Business School have organised a Red Nose Rave for Comic Relief.

The event takes place this Wednesday from 7pm at the University’s Centenary Club in Wrexham.

Bronwyn Cotterrell and fellow students Siobhan Jones, Tobias Perks and Denise Walker are aiming to garner at least £500 on the night through a series of fundraising activities, including face painting, glow stick giveaways, drinks deals and more.

“Red Nose Rave will be a diverse event featuring a variety of student acts, DJs and performers who are all keen to raise lots of money for Comic Relief,” said Bronwyn.

“As Events Management students at Glyndŵr University this is something we can take a lot from; it gives us experience of hosting a hands-on show and we get to do something worthwhile for this incredible cause.”

She added: “This is a charity close to our hearts and we hope to see plenty of people – not just students, everyone – on the dance floor!”

Comic Relief raises millions of pounds, largely through its two big fundraising campaigns: Red Nose Day and Sport Relief, and spends the money tackling the root causes of poverty and social injustice in the UK and across the world.

Entry is £1 and includes a free red nose.
