BCoT held its first virtual open event of the academic year on Tuesday 13 October.
Basingstoke College of Technology is delighted to be partnering with Ark Cancer Centre Charity.
Ark is raising £5million to provide supportive care and services, complementary therapies and an enhanced environment in a NHS cancer treatment centre at Basingstoke hospital.
Charities play a key role in BCoT’s relationship with the local community. By partnering with Ark Cancer Centre Charity, BCoT will help to raise awareness and funds for the charity.
Mark Jones, Director of Fundraising and Communications at Ark Cancer Centre Charity, has recently become an ambassador for BCoT, helping to promote BCoT and the impact the college has on the community.
Anthony Bravo, Principal at BCoT, said: “It is an honour to go into partnership with Ark Cancer Centre Charity. BCoT is a big part of Basingstoke’s community. It is incredibly important that we support local charities in their missions which will help local residents, which include our students and their families. It will be exciting to see this partnership flourish.”
Mark Jones said: “I am proud and honoured to be a BCoT ambassador, and I am delighted that BCoT and Ark Cancer Centre Charity will be working together more closely in 2020 and beyond.
“Ark’s Our Partner supporters all make a significant contribution when it comes to raising funds for, and awareness of, the charity’s £5million appeal and its mission to make a difference to cancer patients and their loved ones.”
BCoT plans to fundraise for Ark’s Ark Day 2020 campaign this year by holding events throughout the college.
