Every year HND Sports Coaching students at Dundee and Angus College are tasked with managing a sport and fitness related event. This time it involved a Student v Staff contest, a Christmas Olympics and a fundraising event, which included staff auctioning services such as car washing, personal training sessions and mountain bike tutorials.

An amazing grand total of just over £1000 was achieved and the students nominated and voted for a charity to benefit from their efforts.

Dundee Cancer Support Network (CANDU) was chosen as, sadly, so many are affected by cancer and it means something to everyone. Student Marianne Rizza has been involved in previous ventures with the charity and was able to explain how it works tirelessly to support local cancer patients and survivors.

Dr Julie Wardrop, Founder and Chairperson at CANDU, says, “I can't thank the students enough. Their generosity, hard work and motivation has been inspiring for everyone at CANDU. The money they have raised will help people with cancer to live their best life possible.” 

Dundee & Angus College

Dundee and Angus College is moving away from traditional thinking and focussing much more on careers not courses. It wants the people of the Dundee and Angus region to be better informed and prepared for the career options available to them, no matter what stage they are at.
