College donates Easter eggs to children’s hospital

Winstanley College students and staff generously donated Easter eggs to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital for ‘The Alder Hey Egg Run 2018’.

Ian Brunning and Colin Hoggins, members of Bike Marshals, an organisation, which supports a range of charities, providing specialist safety cover and first aid services at road events, collected the eggs. Ian, who is also a coach driver for Winstanley College, described the Bike Marshals as ‘one big family’.

The college’s IT director, Colin had some useful advice for students regarding road safety: “A good exercise is to count the number of cyclists and motorcyclists that students see during their bus ride home. This raises their awareness of cyclists and bikers, enabling them to spot such motorists sooner when they eventually become drivers themselves.”

The Bike Marshals safely escorted around 600 motorbikes and scooters from Edge Lane, Liverpool to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital during the ‘The Alder Hey Egg Run 2018’ on the 25 March.
