CASH COW: Bicton College students created an innovative Children in Need fundraiser involving a cow.

The sport and outdoor adventure students placed a cow in a pen on the lawn in front of Bicton House and then sold numbered pieces of wood to staff and students to place around the pen - in the hope of marking the spot where Denis the cow would place her donation!

Outdoor Adventure tutor Ingrid Reynolds said: “Unfortunately, the pressure to perform got to Denis, who failed to deliver in the allotted time, so we had to give a time limit and then pick the log nearest to where Denis was standing.”

Winning contestant was equine lecturer Nicky Craven. Bicton College students raised �100 towards the Children in Need appeal.
