Ed completed the York Marathon this October in four hours and forty five minutes and writes:
'I can honestly say this was one of the hardest things I have ever done! Although I was glad to be able to raise money for the York Carers Centre, which undertakes such sterling work with carers of all ages in the city'
"Thanks to everyone who made a donation! I am really pleased that the links between the university Social Work team and the Carers Centre are getting stronger: this summer we interviewed adult carers on film, creating a video resource for the students; in addition, members of the Carers Centre have joined the department's SUPA Group.
As a social worker, it's really important to me that our students have a proper understanding of the role carers play in the lives of vulnerable people, and that they take this understanding with them as they graduate and move into professional practice."
