Students put their best foot forward for Children in Need
Students from Windsor College went the extra mile on Wednesday (16th November) to raise money for BBC Children in Need. Ten students from the Evolve course (formerly Personal Options) took part in a sponsored 10k walk from Windsor Castle to the Copper Horse statue and back again, raising over £165 for the charity.
East Berkshire College’s Evolve courses are designed for students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The College has built up an excellent reputation for the quality of its foundation learning programmes and its Windsor College is a specialist area for learners on the autistic spectrum.
Lecturer Liz Wheeler explains: “The sponsored walk was a great success and a fun way to raise money for a worthy cause. All the students that took part are currently on the Evolve programme at Windsor College, which is a course for people on the autistic spectrum.”
