Monks’ Dyke student Ben Wells completed a 15K sponsored run in Newcastle to raise money for his World Challenge expedition to Morocco in the summer. Not only did Ben win the race but he raised a total of £350, meaning he has reached his target of £1,000. He said: “Despite being very tired, I am extremely pleased to have finished the run.
“This has raised sufficient funds to allow me to go to Morocco. I am looking forward to helping the less fortunate in Africa, what I have done is nothing compared with what they have to endure on a daily basis.”
