As you will all be aware, the Final of Charity Challenge that should have taken place tonight is not happening. We are all facing dramatic changes to our daily lives following the outbreak of the covid-19 corona virus pandemic.

AFD Software, sponsors of the Charity Challenge, have kindly donated £1750.00 to each of the 6 charities that were in the final, in lieu of the competition prize money, and we are extremely grateful for this. It means that the students work has not gone in vain, and will be recognised. All the charities are willing to recognise the work of the students on their own platforms, as is the One World Centre. In our view, all of the students that have carried the project through to completion have been successful and the work they have done will have an extremely beneficial effect on the work of all the charities and the people they support.
