£2,000 cheque presented to Stop the Heartbreak
25th June 2018
Stop the Heartbreak is the University’s campaign to raise money to provide cardiac screening for young people aged 14-35 years. The campaign, which is led by Professor Diane Crone, Eve Scarle (Senior Lecturer in the Community of Applied Sport and Exercise Sciences) and Carol Loade (Academic Services Manager – Sport and Exercise), received the significant donation from keen supporters, Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
The money was raised through fifteen Enterprise employees taking part in a Wolf Run – a sponsored mud, trail and obstacle run.

Ben Smith, from Enterprise, said: “A team of 15 Enterprise Rent-A-Car employees entered the Wolf Run in an attempt to raise funds for Stop the Heartbreak. As a result of their efforts, the Enterprise Holdings Foundation kindly donated £2,000, which the three of us were delighted to present. Enterprise Rent-A-Car has been a business partner for the University of Gloucestershire for many years and I’m pleased we’re able to help support their fundraising efforts for such a worthy cause.”
