TMP College holds Spring Fayre for The Brick

Students from TMP College in Pemberton, Wigan are holding a Spring Fayre on 18th April, to raise money for The Brick.


Film and media students at TMP College, who attend weekly Personal Social Development (PSD) lessons, developed, and planned the Spring Fayre.


Jessica Murphy HLTA at TMP College said: “TMP College places a strong emphasis on ‘Preparation for Adulthood’ and part of this includes our Personal Social Development (PSD) lessons. For our PSD lessons the students were given a project to plan and run an enterprise and that is where the original idea for the Spring Fayre came about. That idea flourished and the students began organising the college Spring Fayre event.


“We thought a Spring Fayre would be a great opportunity to bring the whole college together with the wider community, and all departments are contributing to the event, with students from all courses, creating their own stall to feature at the Fayre, showcasing their own skills and talents. The students collectively voted to choose The Brick as the local charity that we wanted to fundraise for.


Keely Dalfen, CEO at The Brick, said: “It is amazing that the students at TMP College have come together to plan and run a Spring Fayre to raise money for The Brick. Students and staff from the college have supported The Brick over the years, from producing films through to collaborating with us on fundraising songs, and we are always extremely grateful for all their support.


“I really hope that the community comes together to visit The Spring Fayre to see all the hard work that the students have put into this event, and I hope that everyone has a great day. Thank you to all involved!”  


To conclude the Media students stated: “It will be a fun filled day for all the family with something for everyone and all proceeds going to a good cause. The day will also showcase the different courses and student talents for anyone who might be considering joining TMP.”


The TMP College Spring Fayre will have stalls featuring traditional games like ‘tin can alley’ and stalls selling merchandise, and refreshments. There will also be live acoustic music on stage throughout the day with a photobooth, and snooker and Mario Kart competitions.


The TMP College Spring Fayre is on 18 April 11am-3pm at Lamberhead Green Social Club, 16 White Street, Pemberton, WN5 8JW.
