Lon­don Marathon

Be­fore Christ­mas, fac­ulty head of ex­pres­sive arts Derek John­ston told of his suc­cess­ful Lon­don Marathon bid in sup­port of the Na­tional Autis­tic So­ci­ety.

Mr John­ston and a tal­ented bunch of mu­si­cians took on a num­ber of en­gage­ments in the lo­cal com­mu­nity, spread­ing fes­tive cheer while rais­ing money for this great cause.

He was de­lighted to re­port that through their com­bined ef­forts and the out­stand­ing gen­eros­ity of the peo­ple of Colt­ness, Wishaw and the sur­round­ing lo­cal ar­eas he was able to do­nate the whop­ping sum of £4500 which has been grate­fully re­ceived by the NAS.

Mr John­ston said: “I’d just like to say a huge thank you to all the won­der­ful mu­si­cians who played be­fore Christ­mas and to their par­ents for tak­ing the time to run them to all the dif­fer­ent venues. Their ef­forts have been truly re­warded by the gen­eros­ity shown by the lo­cal peo­ple.

“I can now con­cen­trate fully on my train­ing and hope to post a per­sonal best dur­ing the Marathon in April.”
