a GROUP of students collected more than £1,000 to help children battling cancer.
Five organisers, who are all studying at Sheffield College, hosted a family fun day with games, contests and a raffle at Greenhill Methodist Church in Greenhill.
Event management student Sarah Ridsdale, aged 21, said: “The day was a huge success.
“Money was collected through bag packing beforehand, a website, the raffle and the event itself.
“We raised £1,158.32 which is just incredible.”
The other girls who organised the event as part of their college courses were Melissa Wasnidge, Jodie Arthur, Rachel Staley and Elyse Elliott.
Money collected will boost the coffers of Yorkshire children’s cancer charity Candlelighters.
