College uses unlucky number with the aim of making charity campaign lucky

A Suffolk teacher who has been fundraising for Children in Need for the last 13 years is walking 13 laps of a farm track with 13 students today.

Sarah Brunning is a foundation lecturer at Suffolk Rural (formerly Otley College) and estimates that she has raised around £2000.00 for this benevolent cause (Children in Need) in just over a decade.

This year her class will be involved in a sponsored walk.

She said, “My students and I always keen to back this fantastic charity campaign.”

Suffolk Rural is one of four campuses associated with Suffolk New College in Ipswich.

In addition to the sponsored walk, staff and students at all four establishments are paying a pound to wear onesies.

Penny Rudland works at Suffolk Rural and Suffolk New College as a student support and safeguarding officer. She donned a onesie and said, “It is our job to support children and young people everywhere, not just at the college. Therefore, we will be trying to raise as much money as we can for Children in Need this year.”
