STUDENTS put their best foot forward for charity when they jogged the equivalent of Wisbech to London to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The young people from College of West Anglia, Isle Campus, completed the task with ease and ran into no difficulties when it came to fund raising by bringing in more than £500 through the charity event at the Hudson Leisure Centre.
Ten public service students ran 101 miles on a treadmill to raise money for the cancer charity to support fellow student James Elsey, 16, whose uncle is currently being treated and supported by Macmillan.
Stuart Harrowing, lecturer, said: “I am very proud of all the students who took part in the run and helped to raise so much money for such a worthy cause.
“It’s an excellent effort from everyone involved,.”
