Students studying life and independent living skills teamed together to raise money for the Hope 4 Harmonie appeal.

 

A group of students collected £78 after holding a cake and hand-made Christmas card sale in the Roper Building at Bath College.

 

The Hope 4 Harmonie appeal is raising money for Bath toddler Harmonie-Rose, who fell ill with a deadly form of meningitis just before her first birthday.

 

Doctors at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children saved her life, but were forced to amputate.

 

The fund will help the brave youngster adapt to life as a quadruple amputee, paying for special equipment, prosthetics and home modifications.

 

Foundation learning lecturer Charlotte Henley said: “This is the first time these students have raised money for the Hope 4 Harmonie appeal.

 

“This is part of an enterprise project they are part of – they have to decide what they want to sell. They did a survey to see what was popular, so that’s why they’re selling Christmas cards and cakes.

 

“They made everything from scratch.”
