Well Done to one of last year’s Guest Speakers!


Paralympic and World 200m Champion Richard Whitehead MBE came to CBJ earlier this year to speak to Sports Journalism students and he is now back in the news after completing “the most amazing feat for a man with no feet” – his words not ours.

Double amputee Richard, a long time friend of CBJ lecturer Andrew James, completed 38 marathons in 42 days running from John O’Groats to Land’s End raising up to one million pounds for charity.

Well done Richard and we look forward to welcoming you back to CBJ next year.
