The philanthropic group from the College of Animal Welfare (CAW) in Edinburgh took part in Gung Ho – a 5km fun run, raising £784 for Macmillan Cancer Support and Therapet Canine Concern Scotland Trust.

Chantelle Thayne, an administration apprentice at the college, attended the event. She said: “The fun run was a great way for us to come together as a group and raise money for charities that are sometimes overlooked, but do vital and important work for the community.”

Encouraging contributions

CAW centre manager Karen Hibell congratulated those involved. She said: “The college has a proud history of fund-raising for good causes and, as always, I’m extremely proud of our staff and students for participating.”

CAW said it encourages its students to contribute to both college life and the wider community. Students, therefore, hold various fund-raising events “throughout the year”, it said.
