Pen-y-Fan charity walk

Congratulations to the group of Armed Forces Preparation Course students who raised over £1,800 for charity with a walk up South Wales’ highest peak. The walk to the top of Pen-y-Fan has raised the incredible amount which will be split between three charities - “Blood Bikes Wales”, “Wales Air Ambulance” and “Healing the Wounds” charities. Course tutor Greg Morgan thanked the students for their fundraising efforts .

The college course has actively supported these charities for a number of years and raised over £10,000 to date.

Keep up the good work!
