Sports students get active for Sport Relief

June 13, 2014

A group of sport students from West Cheshire College have raised more than £350 for Sport Relief.

The students, currently studying BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport, teamed up with the Welsh Dragons Wheelchair Rugby Club to hold a charity Wheelchair Rugby match.

Debbie Kendall, College Sport Maker at West Cheshire College, said: “Sport Relief is such a great cause and the students really wanted to do something to help raise money.

“The students, as well as the Welsh Dragons, really enjoyed the event and were delighted with the amount of money that was raised.”

Four players from the Welsh Dragons Wheelchair Rugby Club took part in the event,  Team Captain and Coach Anthony Stackhouse said: “ We are always keen to get involved with any local events that raise money for Sport Relief as it is such a great cause.

"The students were really keen to have a go at playing, so we showed them the basic rules as well as a few tips.

"We ended with a match which was great fun and it's even better that so much money was raised."


The students also organised a one mile run, a ‘soak the tutor’ event as well as a target football challenge.


Other members of the College have also been getting involved in fundraising, including tutor Jo Thompson who is taking part in a family sky dive to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society on 12th April.
