Help me raise the vital funds needed to support Student Hardship at Swansea University.

What is it all about?

I wish to raise a total of £500 on behalf of Swansea University to run the Multi Award Winning JCP Swansea Half Marathon. This famous summer half marathon will be taking place on the 23rd June 2019 and will be the catalyst for ensuring we can continue to collectively support those in need at the University.

By supporting me with this project, you will be responsible for changing the lives of some amazing students that find themselves in unfortunate circumstances, beyond their control. Supporting student hardship can provide crucial support and emergency financial assistance to talented students who find themselves in unexpected financial need.

With your support we can ensure no student is forced to leave University because they can no longer afford it - One step at a time!

Who am I?

My name is Ben Thomas, I'm 22 years old and I work for the Development and Engagement team at Swansea University. I'm responsible for assisting the fundraising team and all our activities. New to the Swansea University team, I'm very passionate about the areas we support. This position, coupled with my ambition to make a difference, has resulted in my goal to raise money and contribute to support the fund that is important to me.

Everyone is entitled to succeed

Reminiscing about my years at the University, they were certainly the most rewarding and enjoyable years of my life so far. With the great expanse of your social circle, the surplus of opportunities made available to you, University can be a platform to help you build a better and brighter future. I was privileged, however, its not all that simple for many people studying in full time education. I have enormous admiration for those whose paths in education have been far from straight forward.

Any number of students can face financial hardship at some point during their time at University. This Swansea Fund aims to increase the support available in this area, easing the financial pressures brought about by engaging in full time education.

With your generosity, we can make a huge difference to the current generation of students in full time education at Swansea University.

Everyone is entitled to succeed, join me as we enrich the student experience so nobody is forced to discontinue fulfilling their ambitions.
