Tracey Horton, fundraising executive said, “The College would like to thank the people of Mansfield and Ashfield for turning up again in great numbers to support the college and all of our stall holders.

“The day was once again a fantastic fundraiser and we managed to top our original £2,500 target!”

The college are aiming to raise £2m to finance a new state-of-the-art sports centre for students, sporting groups from the region and elite level competitors.
