As most of you will be aware, we received a visit recently from Claire Lomas who spoke to all pupils about her accident and how she has reacted as a person to this life changing event. Claire had a message for us all. She talked about the need to always think positively and set yourself challenges. As we know, Claire’s challenges involve completing a marathon and cycling 400 miles, despite her disability. Claire certainly had an effect upon pupils and staff at the college, to the extent that almost everyone at the college volunteered to take part in a Fancy Dress Fun Run, which was held last Friday. Amazingly, £5,000 was raised on the day and there are still funds to be collected. This speaks volumes of the effect that Claire had upon the college, but also of the pupils and staff at the college who regularly support a variety of charities.
