The Great South Run
On Sunday 21 October, the Learning Together team, colleagues, family, friends and supporters, took part in the Great South Run in Portsmouth, to raise money for Learning Together. At the same time, we held sister (5km and 10km) runs in HMPs Whitemoor and Grendon. 40 of our brilliant students ran in Grendon (alongside the High Sheriffs of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire!) and 25 students and members of staff ran in Whitemoor. We have been astounded and inspired by all the support we have received, through donations and by people willing to get involved, and run or cheer us on.
We all ran together to raise money to support students who take part in Learning Together, including by accessing educational opportunities as part of the Learning Together Network and in Cambridge, including through our new bursary support for Level 4 qualifications at the Institute of Continuing Education, with the support of the Longford Trust (see https://www.varsity.co.uk/news/16082).
So far we have raised £3,805. A huge thanks for your support and donations. We are all enormously grateful!
