Our Travel and Tourism students have raised over £800 for The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) by donning their walking shoes.
The students collectively walked 15 miles across Barnsley to raise much-needed funds for the charity. The walk was organised as part of the student’s Travel and Tourism events module, where the students had to organise a charity event.
Lauren Palmer, a current Travel and Tourism student, said: “We chose this charity due to it having a close connection to our hearts and we wanted to help spread the awareness around the community about the welfare of animals.
“Organising charity events provide our students with a great opportunity to gain skills that will help them throughout their careers.”
“This event has improved our communication skills through using technology, as we had to stay in touch with each other throughout the day to see how everyone was getting on, where they were and how many miles they have done.”
Andrew Hallott, a Travel and Tourism tutor, added: “Organising charity events provide our students with a great opportunity to gain skills that will help them throughout their careers whilst raising money to help vital causes. Barnsley College transforms the lives of students, staff and communities.”
