The college's 'Charities Day' made £4,285 as students came up with ideas for stalls in a bid to raise as much money as possible for their house charities.

This total beat the amount of over £3,000 raised at the previous fundraising event, which is part of the college's PLEDGES project.

A post on social media from Ely College said: "Ely College raised a grand total of £4,285 in December. This beats last year's total by a substantial amount!

"We are very proud of our students and wider community who made this happen.

"As always, a huge thank you to those at home who support this unique PLEDGES and Futures Day with pocket money and props."

The college's PLEDGES project allows students to work together to make informed decisions about their futures and help others.
