Headway charity boost
Students at South Lanarkshire College in East Kilbride rose to the challenge of raising cash for a charity close to their hearts.
The events management students organised a race night for the brain injury association Headway and generated £1585.
They were inspired by mature student David Hogton, 38, from St Leonards, who spent two years battling to overcome a brain injury sustained in a car crash which killed his friend.
David told the News:“We were absolutely over the moon to raise as much as we did.
“I know from personal experience this will make a huge difference to Headway. They helped me get my life back after the crash.”
Fellow organiser Elizabeth Newlands, 42, from Calderwood, added:“We had such great support 270418college_01 and there were people at the door of East Kilbride Rugby Club on the night trying to get a ticket.
“We would like to thank everyone who supported us from those who attended to the local businesses who sponsored us or gave us raffle prizes and alike.
“It was very much appreciated and all of us who organised the race night are delighted the cash is going to a cause which is so close to our hearts.”
