Running for the Trust

Paul Watkins of Peterborough College is running a half-marathon in aid of the Ruth Hayman Trust in the Great Eastern Run on Sunday 13 October. Paul is an ESOL teacher of, mostly, Syrian refugees, and recently took up running at the sprightly age of 63!
UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to a police incident, The Great Eastern Run was cancelled. However, Paul is now running a half-marathon in Luton on 27 October, so there’s still time to sponsor him!
We have raised our maximum award by the Trust from £500 to £1,000 to meet the steep rise in fees, especially for vocational courses. So we need your help more than ever to raise the money to fund this increase - supporting Paul’s brilliant effort is a great way to support the Trust. The link to his fund-raising page is above.
Grants are awarded five times per year.
To apply, read our application guidelines then complete an application form. We must also receive an academic reference.
Because of such high demand for our grants, we are not accepting applications for any university fees unless the course leads directly to employment. We never give grants for PhDs.
