A GROUP of Adam Smith students are sure to get an A+ for their efforts after they raised over £1500 for charity.

The first year HND Event Management students organised a day long festival, held on June 1, as part of their course and were overwhelmed with the support they got.

One of the students, who operated under the name Dynamic Events, Lauren Wilson (17) told The Press: “We wanted to make the event a bit bigger than any year has done it before as normally groups play it quite safe.

“Over 500 people came through the doors throughout the day and we raised, I think, the most amount any group has ever raised.

“We made over £2000, but by the time we paid the companies who helped us we raised £1545 for CHAS (Children’s Hospice Association Scotland).

“Our goal was about £1000 so we are really happy to have exceeded that.”

The festival was held at Kirkcaldy Rugby Club and featured bands, singers, DJs, bouncy castles, BBQ, sumo suits, football, rugby matches and various other fun entertainment for the whole family as well as a bar for the adults.

Lauren added: “There was a big mix of people. We had little kids, families and people my age.

“Everyone really enjoyed the bands in particular.

“Thanks to everyone who helped us on the day and those who came along including CHAS who had a stall there.”
