College Coach Braves the Cold and Wet!

Wed, 12/04/2000 - 01:00

East Durham College Students helped organise an event to raise money for Help for Heroes. College staff members; Gill Draper (Uniformed Public Services Lecturer), David Binns (Head of Boxing) and Sue Wright (Personal Tutor) agreed to brave the stocks for this great cause. So in temperatures of about 2 degrees people could pay £1 for a bucket of water or make a donation to throw a wet sponge at their victim!

David Binns said: "It's a great cause and some of those throwing buckets are in my training session this afternoon so I'll get my own back!"
