People news: charity and welcome


40 Cohorts from S15 Adult Student Nurse will be taking part in the Cancer Research UK Muddy 5k challenge on Saturday 16 July at Eaton Park, Manchester. The students will be proudly wearing Manchester Met Pink student nurse T-shirts and welcome your support on the day.

For anyone who kindly wishes to donate there are 2 ways:


A huge thanks for your generosity and support for our bake sale today.

We raised a wonderful £272.92 for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY). Amazing!

Thank you to all of you who donated lovely baked goods and also for your generous donations. It really is much appreciated and very heart-warming.

This has pushed Mark over his £1000 target and I know will spur him on with his marathon training.

There is still quite a lot of cake, it has been well wrapped up and is still in the office (5.40 mmubs) for if you need a sweet treat tomorrow! (There are sandwich bags available for if you would like to take home/to a meeting)

For more info about the cause and for anyone who wasn’t able to make it today, but may still wish to donate, can visit here:

Many many thanks and very best wishes,

Rebecca Sewell, Research Assistant, Centre for Enterprise
