Hereward Spirit present at Coventry Fun Run

A group of 30 people, both students and staff from Hereward College took part in the Coventry Fun Run last weekend. They braved the sweltering heat to complete the course and most of all, they had fun doing so! 

The event was organised by Martin Berisford and Matt Jarvis in a collaboration which managed to bring the college together and raise £600 (Currently!) for both MENCAP and Friends of Hereward. 

The event itself got off to a belter with everybody getting in the full spirit of things and joining in with the rest of the participants! Along the way the group faced some problems but in true Hereward Spirit, they overcame all the issues they faced and made it to the finish line as one, big team.
It was evident that everybody was determined to finish and persevere right until the very end because ultimately, they all wanted to finish it! After crossing the finishing line though and enjoying all the applause that goes with it, the group from Hereward sat down and had a nice relaxing drink and congratulated each other.

There was a lot of fun to be had as the whole day was marked with laughter, jokes and good disposition.

Martin Berisford, one of the main organisers of the event said this about the day “It was a fantastic day and it was brilliant to see people making the effort to do the very best they could. I’d like to thank my teachers, Matt Jarvis & the Sports department in general and of course, to everyone involved for making the day what it was, you should all be proud!”

There will be a celebration taking place for all involved in the event this Thursday at the Jubilee party where we will be handing out prizes and certificates to all involved. Also happening is a big raffle, open to everyone in the college to take part! Why not pop along and see if you’re the lucky winner? If you were involved in the fun run, you get free entry to the jubilee party, so all the more reason to come down and have fun!

Thanks to everyone who took part, we couldn’t have done it without you! Don’t forget to hand in all your sponsorship money to the Business Studies Reception if you haven’t already! Let’s raise that total! 

Without the help of various businesses though, we would not have been able to offer everything we did. We would like to give a special thanks to the following businesses.

Village Hotel
DDC Training Services
Nursery Tavern
Craven Arms
Nadine & Donna Hornsey
Complete Residential Lettings
