Hair and Beauty staff are currently training hard for the world’s leading half marathon, the Great North Run. Each year students are tasked with raising money for a chosen charity and this year Bluebell Wood children’s hospice was chosen. The group decided to run the Great North Run to inspire the students, boost our charity totals and set an example to students about healthy living.
The team includes three non-employees as well as the following line up:
The fearless bunch started a running club led by Karen Gregory at the start of the academic year and describe themselves as very much a mixed ability group with most never running before.
Training every Wednesday after work the team have gone from not being able to run for a bus to hopefully being able to complete a half marathon in September. The team are hoping to raise a minimum of £1,500 but ideally a great deal more.
Any donations can be made via http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/donnycollege
We wish the team the best of luck!
