Students have been showing their support in support for lecturer, Vicky Morris who is preparing to run the London Marathon in memory of her sister, by raising case for the Anthony Nolan Trust.
With the help of our Catering students, Travel and Tourism students organised a coffee morning to raise money for the Anthony Nolan Trust. The Trust helps find bone marrow donors to help people with blood cancer.
The students sold £75 worth of delicious cakes and coffee which brings Travel and Tourism lecturer Vicky’s running total just a few pounds away from her target of £1850 – amazing!
Vicky said “The College has been amazing, wishing me well on my run and many have also donated to the cause. The Travel students have been extremely supportive, checking on my training progress and many have also donated to the charity”.
After putting on her running shoes for the first time in 25 years, Vicky is taking on the challenge in order to help Anthony Nolan continue their fantastic work in finding matches for bone marrow transplants. Vicky will be one of thousands taking part in the gruelling 26 mile Virgin Money London Marathon which passes through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall.
This just goes to show, with the right motivation and commitment you can achieve the biggest of challenges – Good luck Vicky!
