In total, staff have raised an incredible £12,100 for these worthwhile charities. Fundraising activities throughout the year included a golf tournament, an 80km cycle from campus to campus, a walk in the Mourne Mountains, a BBQ, a pub quiz and a skydive. 

 Brian Doran, SRC Chief Executive commented “The money raised will make a real difference to people living within our local community.  It has also brought staff together, leading to a more positive and engaging place to work.”
