From education to employment

On yer bike for Kenya

Each year Gower College Swansea students hold a series of fundraising events in support of the Kenya Community Education Project and, despite restrictions due to the pandemic, they found a way to do it in 2020!

The students at Gorseinon and Tycoch campuses competed against each other on bikes to virtually cover the distance from Nairobi to Sigmore to raise money for Madungu Primary School, with which the College has a long-standing association. 

The event was coordinated by the KCEP board and our Foundation Degree Events Management students took on the responsibility of planning and delivering as part of their foundation degree.   

The project started in 2003 and their continued efforts ensure that underprivileged young people have opportunities to learn, gain qualifications and enjoy a brighter future.

So far, the On yer bike for Kenya fundraising event has raised a fantastic £1,324 out of their £2,000 goal. If you would like to donate, please visit their TotalGiving page:  

 Well done to all those involved in this year’s fundraising event!
