Please give to the IDS Scholarship Fund in recognition of our alumni relations officer, Michelle Cruickshank, running the Brighton half-marathon on 23 Feb 2020.

“This photo is me and my mum (who is running the 1/2 marathon with me) after an especially wet and windy training run in Brighton. This half-marathon will be the furthest I’ve ever run and I’m really excited to run in aid of the IDS Scholarship Fund. All donations are greatly appreciated!"” Michelle Cruickshank - IDS Alumni Relations Officer
