Student event to raise awareness of disability issues
Stoke on Trent College is raising awareness of disability issues at a high profile event.
Students and the local community will be given an invaluable learning experience at the 5th annual Disability Day on Wednesday 25th April. The event will be held at the Sports Hall on Cauldon Campus from 10am until 2pm.
Tony Harris and Tom Neathway from Race2Recovery, a group of ex-soldiers whose mission is to help wounded servicemen and women, will be the special guests during the day. Having recently featured on BBC’s Top Gear, their motivational talks will discuss how to go beyond injury and disabilities to achieve the extraordinary.
Other activities include guide dog displays, Bollywood dancing, gift stalls and dance performances from FRONTline Dance.
70 organisations including Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, Caudwell Children, Douglas Macmillan Hospice and MS society will also be attending the event offering advice on a range of disability issues.
Sarah Robinson, Principal of Stoke on Trent College, commented: “The day will be a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of disability issues to our students and we are looking forward to listening to the advice that Race2Recovery and the other organisations during the day have to offer.
“We pride ourselves in our equality ethos, it’s an integral part of our college community and these are invaluable lessons for all students to learn.”
