After planning and organising the bike ride from scratch as part of their studies, the students set off from the College at 9:30am on Tuesday 19th June, returning at around 3pm that afternoon.
Student, Paul Hayton said: “It was hard work but every moment was enjoyable.
“Knowing we were raising money for such a great cause made it all worthwhile.”
Air & Defence Lecturer, Richard Thornhill MBE said: “This type of challenge enables our students to experience what it’s like to organise, plan and deliver a complex event.
“They were tasked with forming a committee and appointing job roles and then deciding on what charity event they would undertake.
“When they had finalised their plans they presented this to a panel of senior industry representatives in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ format for final approval.
“This last task builds on their employability skills already developed during the year and will enable them to have a very confident and competent conversation at interview when asked questions around their leadership skills.”
