It’s all got a bit real for these students …

It’s approaching the end of year for the students that we work with at Falmouth University and both the 2nd and 3rd year cohorts are creating and planning events for delivery over the next 3 weeks.  The events range from charity balls to old school sports days, from skate and music events to training and skills development.

Here’s a post from one of those students shouting about her project and approach! Over to Isabelle …

“The inaugural Cornish Charity Ball will take place on Friday 16th May at the Greenbank Hotel here in Falmouth. The aim of the event is to raise both awareness of the valuable work of the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust whilst also, of course, raising money for them. This unique evening has an elegant 1910 theme and will include exquisite catering, an incredible raffle and dazzling jazz entertainment for a truly memorable night. 

This event promises to be unique in another way as this isn’t the work of experienced, professional event managers. Instead this is the work of students. But we’re not talking about your stereotypical sleep-in-until-midday, live off takeaways and avoid the washing up at all costs breed of student. Rather, these are committed students who attend the Falmouth Business Club breakfast meetings and speak on local radio, Source FM, about their causes and concerns.

As 2nd year BA Hons Creative Events Management students at Falmouth University, the Cornish Charity Ball team are making great strides into the professional world and taking the leap from academia. The first Cornish Charity Ball will not only be a chance for local businesses and members of the community to network and understand more about the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, but will also demonstrate the talent and excellence of Falmouth University students.
