Three staff members from North Shropshire College (NSC) have set their sights on picking up a specially designed medal when they complete the first Oswestry Half Marathon on Sunday 30th April. Vicky Brayne and Jill Cawthray from the Oswestry Campus of the College will be joined by Katie Ellis from the Walford Campus, and collectively they will be running for Team Hope House in what promises to be an exciting new event for the town.

Local tourist attraction, The British Ironworks will be hosting the event, and those who complete the run of just over 13 miles will receive a specially commission medal design by the well-known British sculptor Joe Bailey unique to the event.

Vicky Brayne, Quality Officer at NSC comments, “Our training is well under way and we are all very excited at the prospect of taking part in the event for such a good cause”.
