Fundraising fancy dress at the College of West Anglia including Pikachu, Super Mario – and even a flamingo – raised more than £400 for Children in Need.
Animal care and dog grooming staff and students from the Cambridge campus dressed up to raise money to transform the lives of disadvantaged youngsters.
They raised a total of £205.61.
Other activities taking place included hair and beauty students offering a morning of 30-minute treatments ranging from mini pedicures and manicures, as well as facials, shampoo and blow-dries.
A volleyball tournament was also held at the college's sports campus.
