Our students at Cardonald Campus this week held a ‘Bubble Tea’ event in order to encourage students to participate in the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice’s, 2018 Bubble Rush.
The bubble event was a huge success among the students. The afternoon was consisted of everything to do with bubbles. Over 50 samples of ‘’The Best bubble tea in the United Kingdom’’ were given out and were quickly devoured after a short space of time.
The event was aimed at persuading Glasgow Clyde College students to sign up early for the Bubble Run in spring 2018 and to encourage people to donate to the charity.
It was run by a group of HND Media and Communications students, who are studying PR as part of their qualification.
Team leader, Caitlin Connolly, said: ‘’Bubbles and fun for everyone – we didn’t imagine how successful this event would be. I’m happy we were able to raise a lot of money for the hospice.’’
The Bubble Rush is a 5K run which takes place in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow, where high-powered bubble stations shoot coloured foam bubbles at participants as they are running.
The Bubble Rush is one of many events held by the PPW hospice every year. Their aim is to raise £3.1 million so that it can then be used to care for patients and families in Glasgow. The Prince and Princess of Wales hospice offers care and support to those who suffer from serious illness across Glasgow.
Caroline Watson, from the PPW Hospice said: ‘’Last year we sold 600 tickets in the first two days – we hope to double that this year.’’
