Students support for Loki
A college student has been touched by the kindness of her fellow students. Care student Lorran Davies explained how the students studying on the BTEC Health & Social Care course at the Rhondda Campus had come together to support her family.
Lorran’s son Loki who is 20 months old has Cystic Fibrosis and the community is rallying around to raise funds to purchase a physio vest for him. As part of their Welsh Baccalaureate qualification the students decided to use the Community Partnership module to support Loki.
Care students 17 year old Katie Devinett from Ton Pentre and 19 year old Carly Robins from Trealaw, have both been instrumental in organising activities to promote the worthy cause. Katie said” When we heard about little Loki we discussed how we could raise money for Loki’s physio vest and came up with loads of ideas”; Carly added “During our Welsh Bac sessions we drew up a calendar of activities, including raffles, cake stalls and bric a brac sales and can’t believe how generous people are – we’ve already raised over £200.
Course Tutor Eva Tewkesbury said “The students have been really enthusiastic with this activity as it’s a cause particularly close to their hearts; they can appreciate the benefits the vest would have for Loki.
