Chichester College Group supports BRIT and the BRIT 2021 Challenge
We are delighted to receive the support of the Chichester College Group for the BRIT 2021 Challenge.
Chichester College has been a tremendous supporter of BRIT for many years; they were integral to the launch of the BRIT 2012 Challenge and hosted the first day of that challenge when we were joined on the campus by BRIT Ambassadors and supporters; Olympian, Iwan Thomas MBE; polar adventurer, charity campaigner and CEO, Michael McGrath and charity fundraiser and campaigner, Nell McAndrew.
Chichester College also enabled BRIT to operate in the early years by providing a home for the charity and hosting our BRIT Trustee meetings.
The enthusiasm and support from staff and students over many years has been extraordinary and we were delighted that the Chichester College Group took part in the BRIT 2020 Row Britannia Challenge.
Shelagh Legrave OBE DL, Chief Executive Officer of the Chichester College Group has been a great friend and advisor. We are sincerely grateful to Shelagh for supporting BRIT and our Founder, Phil Packer.
“The Chichester College Group have supported the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) for many years and our students and staff have been involved in supporting, coordinating and hosting BRIT events including the BRIT 2012 Challenge and more recently, the BRIT 2020 Row Britannia Challenge.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and closure of all universities and colleges meant that we were unable to complete the challenge and reach our fundraising target. We are therefore delighted that BRIT are delivering the BRIT 2021 Challenge as a feelgood fundraiser to improve student and staff mental health and fitness, all whilst raising vital funds for mental health charities.
Our Chichester College Group is comprised of five colleges, each having their own Student Union. The BRIT 2021 Challenge provides the flexibility for our students and staff to decide if we enter one team for our whole group or each college and student union enters a team.
We want to provide the opportunity for everyone to take part, so it’s great that our colleges have the choice to take on their own 2,021mile target and set their own fundraising targets or decide if we have one fundraising target for the whole group. However we decide to embrace the challenge, this innovative BRIT 2021 Challenge has the potential to improve the mental health and fitness of all our students and staff.
We will do all we can through social media to encourage universities and colleges in the South East Region to join us and take on the BRIT 201 Challenge.
