They decided that they wanted to help the cause at this time of year and spread a little Christmas cheer.

College house managers came up with idea in the lead up to the end of term.

For their generosity, students were rewarded with a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) which equates to house points for their house.

All RAK's were entered into a prize drawer where one winner from each House received a Cineworld voucher.

A college spokesperson said: "We were absolutely blown away with the amount of donations made and our hope of spreading a little cheer has grown to a large amount of cheer, exceeding our expectations by far."

Cathy Wright, manager of the foodbank, visited to accept the donations, which were handed over by the house captains.
