Students from UWTSD's Swansea Business School have raised £389.00 for Ysgol Crug Glas, a local school that provides education to pupils with profound and complex learning difficulties. The cheque was presented at a ceremony attended by pupils from Ysgol Crug Glas and students from UWTSD.

Dr Caroline Jawad of UWTSD Swansea Business School said: “We are keen to have an impact on our community.  Through numerous events I feel our students are making a positive difference to life in our community.”

The money was raised at a special lunch given over the Christmas period given by UWTSD’s Swansea Business School. It was one of a number of events held by the school to raise money for local charities, where staff take on duties to serve lunch to the students in our canteen. Students were keen for the money raised to go to children which was very appropriate at Christmas time.  Sam Isherwood a business student in his final year of undergraduate studies suggested the local school, Ysgol Crug Glas for children aged between 3 and 19 who have profound and multiple, or severe and complex learning difficulties. The school is part of the Pioneer Special Schools group looking at the new Successful Futures curriculum brought about by the Donaldson Report. Many have associated communication, behavioural and / or sensory difficulties, and a significant number have very specific health care requirements. 

Dr Maggie Inman is the Head of Swansea Business School. She said: “I’m really proud of all the students who have worked so hard in our fundraising activities.  They are a credit to UWTSD Swansea Business School and I’d like to publicly thank them for all their efforts.”
