Dress down day helps towards local lady’s last wish
On Friday we held the UTC’s first ever dress down day. The event was the suggestion of IT student Shola St-John Forbes, who was touched after hearing the story of an Aylesbury woman’s dying wish.
Marria Nelms has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and spoke to Mix 96 recently about her dream of being able to marry her partner. After hearing the report, Shola wanted to do something to help Marria get her big day and suggested holding a dress down day.
It was lovely to see Shola taking the initiative for such a worthy cause and to watch the other students take part and give so generously. In total, the students have been able to donate £100, which we hope will go some of the way to making Marria’s dream become a reality.
