Catching Lives would like to thank all the Sports and Public Service students at Canterbury College who helped raise £517.76 through an organised Sportathon held in May.
The event was held on the University Of Kent’s sports Fields and saw students competing against each other for the glory of being the best for their dept. The Activities included a Football competition, Rounders, 1500m race, 100m race, Tug of War and fun side stalls.
One of the students taking part was Charlie Butterfill (Level 2 – BTEC Diploma in Public Services) who said,
“We have raised over £515 pounds and all the money goes towards helping homeless people for the charity Catching Lives. We organised a football match, rounders and many other activities. We fundraised by charging an entry fee and with bucket collections around the Kent University’s sports grounds. It’s been a great experience to make a difference to a great charity”
The money raised will help support the homeless individuals who access our daycentre on Station Road East.
