Student organises surprise Leavers’ Day performance in honour of mum
A Bilborough College student organised a flash mob to raise money for Cancer Research UK in honour of his mum who is currently undergoing chemotherapy.
Ben Allen, 17, arranged a surprise performance of Bruno Mars’ ‘Uptown Funk’ by various student musicians in the Refectory, during the Leavers’ Day celebrations.
Students collected donations in buckets and the £71.35 raised was donated to Cancer Research UK.
Ben, who is studying Biology, Geography, Psychology and EPQ at Bilborough College, was inspired to raise money for the charity after his mum, Cheryl, was diagnosed with cancer.
