On Sunday the 26th April, Ciaran O’Hare, Director at Aurion Learning raised a whopping £2116 for Northern Ireland’s Cancer Fund for Children (NICFC) by competing in the London Marathon.
Ciaran raced past his target of £1600 and crossed the finishing line at an impressive 4 hours, 38 minutes. All of the money raised will be donated to NICFC and used to help families in Northern Ireland who have a child suffering from cancer.
Ciaran’s fundraising efforts are reflective of a long history of giving and volunteering at Aurion Learning. In May 2014, members from the Aurion Learning team formed a relay team for the Belfast Marathon, raising money for Education and Technology charity Camara. In June 2014, nine members of the team participated in the Race for Life at Stormont, raising money for Cancer Research UK.
Speaking about the achievement, Ciaran O’Hare, Director at Aurion Learning said:
“Brilliant non-stop support from the crowd – real carnival atmosphere throughout the race, happy enough finishing 23,894th in what is officially the largest annual fund raising event in the world and most importantly adding my own small contribution on behalf of the NI Cancer Fund for Children, many thanks to all my generous sponsors!”
It’s not too late to donate so if you would like to contribute money to NICFC, visit the official marathon fundraising page.

Finding & Using Open Education Resources
Our next Members Meeting is being held on 24th April at the Quality Scotland Academy in Edinburgh.
Our main speaker at this meeting is Pete Cannell from the Open University in Scotland who will give us some background to Opening Educational Practices in Scotland (OEPS).
Opening Educational Practices in Scotland (OEPS) is a sector wide project led by the Open University in Scotland that's looking at how the development of effective practice in the use of Open Educational Resource supports widening participation, transitions into education and between different episodes of education and training.
Pete Cannell (the co-director of the project) will look at some examples of the partnership developments that OEPS is working on and will discuss how some of the resources being developed through OEPS may be able to support new initiatives.
This event is free for Members to attend, and £30 for non-Members.
