ALMOST 200 Sheffield students are hitchhiking to the south coast - to boost city charities.

The Bummit team from the University of Sheffield set off on their sponsored hitchhike to Brighton to raise money for charities across the city.

Students supported the Neurocare November campaign by buying £1 bright green and purple scarves from the charity to raise awareness as they make their way down south.

Emma Douglas, Neurocare’s head of fundraising, said: “It is brilliant to have the Bummit team supporting us. One of our volunteers spotted a team wearing their scarves by the roadside and they shared a mutual cheer.”
