AN events man­age­ment stu­dent is putting her or­gan­i­sa­tional skills to the test by get­ting in­volved in a char­ity event on her home turf.

Now she has been in­vited to get in­volved with the Walk to Re­mem­ber event at Tat­ton Park, a 10k walk around Tat­ton to raise money for the char­ity.

Na­dia, a stu­dent at Sheffield Hal­lam Univer­sity, said: “I’m look­ing for­ward to get­ting in­volved on the day and us­ing my skills and knowl­edge from my univer­sity course to make it a fan­tas­tic day for peo­ple walk­ing in mem­ory of their loved ones.”

Com­mu­nity fundraiser for Mac­cles­field Jes­sica Her­ring­ton said: “Last year it was so mov­ing to see so many fam­i­lies, friends and loved ones join to­gether for Marie Curie. The walk­ers raised over £40,000 in spon­sor­ship in 2014, which helped us pro­vide 2,000 hours of nurs­ing care.”
