Students from Barnsley College have completed their latest walk in a series to raise funds for an NHS transport service for critically ill children.

Teenagers undertook the two-and-a-half mile journey from the Old Mill Lane site to Wigfield Farm at Worsbrough in aid of Embrace Yorkshire and Humber Infant and Children’s Transport Service.

Based at Dodworth, Embrace provides round-the- clock transport for poorly infants and children who require care in another hospital or further afield.

Lecturer Samantha Middleton said: “Many of our students have taken part in the walks to raise money for Embrace and the link has been useful in introducing the students to a new aspect of the NHS operation and the varied careers that exist within the health service.”
