On Friday, 15 October, the NCTJ and supporters will be taking part in a sponsored walk to raise money for the Thomas Read bursary.
The bursary is awarded each year through the Journalism Diversity Fund to aspiring journalists with disabilities or long-term physical or mental health problems, and helps fund their NCTJ training.
The bursary was set up by the family of the young Sky Sports News journalist, Thomas Read, who died unexpectedly in 2015, aged 25.
Thomas was an inspirational young journalist who, in spite of his cerebral palsy, achieved a substantial amount in the field of journalism in a short space of time.
The NCTJ team will be embarking on a 15km walk, and we encourage you to turn out for Thomas by embarking on a fundraising activity of your choice.
You may choose to do a run, a bake sale, a cycling challenge or something completely different – the more creative the better! If you would like to take part, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are aiming to raise £4,000. Please sponsor us and help us raise money for this fantastic cause. Any donation big or small will really help us make a difference.
