Sports Clubs and Societies raise £8,000 at the Plymouth 10K

On Sunday 7th October some of the Students' Union clubs and societies took part in the Plymouth 10k, raising a total of £8,020 for charity. The University of Plymouth Netball club raised £3,570 with the Marrow Society raising £2,555, along with many other student groups contributing to the fundraising total. Hundreds of University of Plymouth students took on the challenge across the city for various reasons and causes - whether it be to reach a personal goal or for an inspiring cause.
