ELY students were in the pink last week as they raised money for charity.

A group of students at Ely Sixth Form College donned pink clothes to help raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.

The Wear it Pink day was organised by Year 12 administration students, Holly Saul, Charlotte Badcock, Lisa Monigatti, Jacey Allen, Catherine Harding and Sehrish Hussein.

Their fellow students were asked to donate £1 each for the privilege of wearing something pink, while pink cakes, baked by the college catering staff, raised more cash.

Sehrish said: "As part of our course we had to arrange an event and we decided to raise money for charity at the same time.

"It was a brilliant day and we really enjoyed it. We're doing another event for Children in Need on November 14, when we are all going to come to school dressed in our pyjamas."

The students were able to donate more than £250 to the charity.
