Super dodgeball success
Yet another amazingly pulled of event ran by level 4 and 5 NC business Students. This event was held in West Lothian Colleges sport and fitness hall the Students had a short time slot to work with but still managed to get a good number of games played and most importantly it helped spread awareness of the work that we do.
With only one event still to come, we are looking forward to it hopefully it will be as successful as the past events to end an amazing year at college for these students we would like to thank them for all their amazing work
Partnership in the making
Message from Donna
The second team of the West Lothian College level 4 and 5 NC business management class ran the second event out of 4 "team Keith" ran a success open mic event featuring a local raper form West Lothian College and Scotish Rapper A-macc (Andrew Malcolmson). We would like to thank the leader of "team Keith" Victoria for making this all happen throughout this event she showed dedication and great leadership even willing to travel to Glasgow to pick up A-macc.
One of the most important outcomes of this event was that we made a link with Andrew who runs events and does a lot of similar work to us through in Glasgow so we are looking forward what our future has to come with him

Neil's hugs team"s up with local business students
The Neil’s hugs foundation has recently partnered up with West Lothian College NQ Business Management level 4 and 5 classes. As a part of their course, they have to organize an event and we were fortunate to be chosen as their key charity. The classes have been split into four teams and will run four different events with the purpose of raising awareness of the charities aims.
Also as a part of this opportunity, our website is going through a massive uplift you will notice over the next few weeks!!!!!
