Children in Need

Staff and students from Aberystwyth University's Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) once again clashed for the yearly football match to raise money for Children in Need. Held in the indoor equine arena, players had to wear Wellington boots and had their legs tied together if they scored.

The students won the ‘Welly Cup' for the second year in a row, a triumph of youth over age! Institute Director Professor Wayne Powell who played and scored in the match commented, “This was great fun and shows the close working relationship between staff and students. The University is proud to support such a worthy cause as Children in Need”. A total of £125 has so far been raised.
