This coming weekend (2/3 February) the
College prefects will attempt a 24-hour Duathlon in aid of ‘Care for the
Family’. Over the 24 hours the prefects, working in shifts, will complete 12
hours of running and 12 hours of cycling.
This year, as their chosen charity, the
prefects have selected ‘Care for the Family’ a national charity which aims to
promote strong family life and to help those who face family difficulties.
‘Care for the Family’ offers support and advice to families that are undergoing
periods of difficulty, whether it be divorce or bereavement.
This year marks
the 25th anniversary of ‘Care for the family’ founded in 1998 by Rob
is a central part of the College community and this charity emphasizes the
importance of strong bonds between individual family members. For information

for the Family’ and will need your help to reach this goal. All donations are greatly appreciated and if
