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.
