Students Raise £1115 Running For Lupus!

Run for Lupus - The Hibbs Lupus Trust

Public Services students for South Staffordshire College raised £1115 recently by running for lupus!  Set a challenge by their lecturer, Carl Edwards, to create a fund raising event, the students quickly set to work.

After selecting The Hibbs Lupus Trust as their charity, the students designed a range of challenges from 3 – 10 mile runs around Cannock Chase to test their fitness whilst raising awareness and money.

The project, which forms part of their studies, was a great success and after the gruelling 10 miles, the team of learners hit a grand total of £1115 all of which has been donated to the trust and will go directly to helping patients in Staffordshire.

James Smith, a Public Services student whose mom is a lupus sufferer, said he wanted to raise funds for the charity as he sees everyday what she goes through as a result of lupus and associated illnesses.

The Hibbs Lupus Trust want to say a very big thank you to the team of students and their lecturer for choosing the charity and for raising awareness.
