Students put on a frightful show at West Nottinghamshire College, all in the name of helping a cancer charity.

All travel and tourism students collected loose change and took £1 donations from everyone who took part in the scarefest two-day fancy dress event before their half term break.

Students dressed up as zombies, witches, black cats, pirates and other Halloween-related characters on the Tuesday and Wednesday (21 and 22 October) before the college holidays.

Over £150 was collected for the Mercedes Curnow Foundation which is a charity set up to detect early cervical cancer, in honour of Mercedes who died aged just 23.

Tutor Sabrina Sandhu said: “Everyone looked brilliant in their costumes and brought a sense of fun to raising the cash for the Mercedes Curnow Foundation, our nominated charity of the year.”
