Foundation Degree students will be going the distance for charity.

Students studying the Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching course at Dearne Valley College (DVC) will be doing a charity bike ride to raise money for The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s Dr. Ted Children’s Appeal.

On Thursday 29 March 2012 from 10.00am until 2.00pm the Higher Education students will go head-to-head with fellow Public Services students to see who can cycle the furthest distance as part of the ‘Tour De Dearne’ Challenge.

The groups from the Wath-based College will take it in turns to use exercise bikes to monitor how far they can go as part of the challenge.

As part of the Personal Professional Development unit, the students have been split into groups with different responsibilities to make the important day happen. Working as a team, smaller groups have been responsible for; media, estates, charity liaison, finance, health and safety and event management.

Mick Blythe, DVC Sport and Physical Recreation Tutor commented:
“The students have worked really hard to organise this forthcoming event. They hope to raise lots of money for the charity and with their enthusiasm and commitment I’m sure they will reach their target, I wish them all the best”.

The Dr. Ted Children’s Appeal, part of Rotherham Hospital Charity, aims to raise funds to further improve the experience of children and families at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust by providing fun and learning accessories.

Tracy Williams, Charity Development Officer, The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, commented;
“We are extremely grateful to the students at Dearne Valley College for organising this event on behalf of the Dr Ted Children’s appeal. I am certain that all their hard work will pay off and the event is set to be a great success. It has been a pleasure to work with the students and the money they raise will go a long way in putting smiles on a lot of children’s faces”.
