Fantastic news - we’re proud to annouce that we raised over £500 for BBC Children in Need last week! Our students made a big effort to help fundraise for Children in Need. Collectively through bun sales, selling merchandise and Pudsey and Blush making a special appearance, we collected an outstanding total of £548.01. Well done to everyone who helped support the important charity.
Congratulations to our Horticulture alumni, Jamie Butterworth, who has been was named in Pro Landscaper Magazine’s ‘Most Influential’ list alongside Alan Titchmarsh.

A finalist in BBC3’s Young Gardener of the Year 2011, he’s since featured in BBC coverage of RHS Chelsea, been a regular guest on James Max’s Saturday morning show on Radio London, and popped up on Gardeners’ Question Time on BBC Radio 4. Our successful alumni will be joining us once again to present a workshop at our Horticulture Conference on Tuesday 30th January. We can’t wait to welcome him back on campus!
