Tutors inspired to battle London marathon

07/03/2016

Two Coleg y Cymoedd tutors are fundraising with their learners after signing up for the London Marathon for a cause that is important to them personally and professionally.

Vocational Access tutors Ange Fitzgerald and Craig Thomas are both running the London Marathon in April to raise money for a charity who support people with autism, learning difficulties and disabilities.

As well as training hard, the tutors have been organising fundraising efforts that their Vocational Access learners can be actively involved with. Activities have included cake sales and coffee mornings on campus which learners ran to bring in a successful profit.

The tutors and learners are raising money for a charity ‘Kith & Kids’ who provide activities, opportunities, information and support for people with a learning disability or autism, their parents and siblings.

Tutor Ange Fitzgerald said: “We’re so proud of the commitment the learners have put into the different fundraising events”

Craig Thomas said: “The learners have put a lot of time and effort into planning and preparing each event. There’s a lot of training involved but it’ll all be worth it, it’s such a worthy cause.”

Learner Meurig Gullidge, from Church Village, added: “We have enjoyed taking part in the fundraising activities. It has also helped us with our volunteer section of our Duke of Edinburgh award too.”
