See how a little encouragement goes a long way

Time and again students tell us how much it means to know that someone they’ve never met believes in them. For many, it’s the extra motivation they need to overcome the obstacles they face.

During our 2016 Winter Appeal, we invited supporters like you to share words of encouragement over Facebook and Twitter. The response was overwhelming, with more than 140 messages for the students. Thank you to each and every one of you who took the time to pass on these kind words.

We shared them with our Learning for Life students – check out their reactions in the video!

If you haven't already, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep in touch with us and our students.
