SQA Apprentices Host Chari-Tea Party!

A group from the SQA Modern Apprentices hosted a Cancer Support Scotland Chari-Tea Party on Tuesday 2nd of June and raised an impressive £207.90 in the process.

The five apprentices, all from Glasgow, used a ‘Mad Hatter’ theme for their tea party and were delighted with the funds they managed to raise for Cancer Support Scotland.

Andrew Crosbie, from Sandyhills, said that they chose to host the event and raise money for Cancer Support Scotland because “many people within the business have been affected by cancer and we have several staff either living with the disease or with relatives affected by the disease.”


Andrew added that Cancer Support Scotland “do very good work supporting people affected by cancer and I see this first hand through a relative currently suffering from the illness who is benefiting from Cancer Support Scotland’s services.”

The SQA had been looking for ways to get apprentices working together and this was the perfect opportunity. The event allowed the apprentices to interact with members of the company that they otherwise wouldn’t get the chance to meet.

The event was a success and the SQA has agreed to consider future fundraising activities being organised by its next intake of Modern Apprentices.
