For the second year running students and staff here at DLD College London, set out on a challenge to complete either a 5k or 10K charity run for Evelina Children’s Hospital at Lee Valley VeloPark, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London.
The College raised over £1,500 in aid of Evelina Children’s Hospital, a specialist London hospital and community services that is part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. They help to make a difference to thousands of young lives and their families, working to provide a range of services from antenatal diagnosis through to childhood, into adolescence and into adult life. We like to support our local community and this Charity is based only a few minutes’ walk away from the College
Sean Gallagher, Sports Co-ordinator here at DLD commented: “We are incredibly proud of our students for their fantastic achievement; they raised an outstanding amount for a great cause. The most rewarding part of the day was simply seeing students and staff supporting each other and working towards a common goal whilst enjoying themselves in the process.
“At DLD College London we are passionate about supporting our local community and this charity is based only a few minutes’ walk away from the college. It works tirelessly to help the lives of those in our neighbouring area so, it is very close to our hearts.”
