A TEAM of students from South Worcestershire College, who are one of the eight finalists of the Brathay Apprentice Challenge and regional winners, are encouraging people to get their boss to sort the rubbish to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust UK.

The students made it through to the final after three months of competition between over 100 teams from the country’s top Apprenticeship employers, training providers and colleges.

The team consists of apprentices from seven different, Midland based organisations and are an all-girl team.

Now as part of their fundraising effort the team are holding an event where people sponsor their boss to sort out the rubbish at the Budget Skip Hire and Waste Management site in Honeybourne, near Evesham.

The event, taking place on Saturday, June 7, works by each company sponsoring their boss or manager to sort rubbish for no longer than an hour. All the companies must raise at least £100 to enter where all money raised goes to Teenage Cancer Trust UK.

Bethany Holloway, aged 18, is part of the team.

She said: "Over the next month we are competing against teams ranging from Virgin Media to British Airways. We believe our teamwork and determination means that, although we come from the some of smallest organisations, we are a strong team."
