Students answer BBC Children in Need's call to Do Your Thing
Nottingham University Business School students answered BBC Children in Need's call to "Do Your Thing" and help raise money to transform the lives of disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK.
Lloyds Banking Group - Make a Difference Challenge
A team of five first year undergraduates entered The Lloyds Banking Group's Make a Difference Challenge - a new initiative with the multiple aims of giving students an insight into the financial sector and raising money for BBC Children in Need.
In a national challenge, university teams were tasked with making as much money as possible in 48 hours using their entrepreneurial skills.
Nottingham's 'Team Aspire' of Dominic Rose, Claudia Baker, April Fergus, Sanjay Shah, and Rosie Mahoney raised £600 and placed in the top three in the country.
The team have been invited to a finalists day in Leeds, where they will present their success to a panel of senior leaders and external representatives for the chance to win a trophy and a summer placement.
BBC Children in Need
BBC Children in Need works throughout the year to ensure that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood, and the chance to reach their full potential. It relies on the energy and commitment of thousands of fundraisers and supporters across the UK, who donate their time and money to put on events supporting the appeal.
The 2016 appeal takes place on Friday 18 November on BBC1.
