24-hour Spinathon 2024

24-hour Spinathon 2024



  • About

Derwen Charity – a charity which benefits young adults with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) at Derwen College – is pedalling towards a third annual 24-hour Spinathon.

The event has grown since its launch in 2022 to become a firm favourite on the College’s fundraising calendar.

This year, the event takes place on 2–3 February 2024, and will see students and staff from the specialist further education college, in Gobowen, take part in a gruelling spin session which carries on through the night.

Money raised for Derwen Charity allows people with SEND (both students and long-term resident clients) to enjoy extra experiences and opportunities which allow them to thrive in their independence, learning and wellbeing.

Originally launched by sports coordinators Steve Evans and Sian Thomas, the Spinathon sees fundraisers pedal for a phenomenal 24 hours. They are joined on the journey by students, staff and supporters who all pledge to raise money through their own individual challenges, whether that be 30 minutes or the full 24-hour shift.

The entire event will be live streamed, and there’s entertainment through the night.
