More than a dozen charities are set to benefit from the funds raised at West Nottinghamshire College’s Christmas market.

Organised by early years and health and social care students, the festive fayre saw sales of cakes, sweets, chocolate reindeer, wax melts and candles to students and staff, along with the chance to win a selection of prizes.

Visitors could win prizes through the ‘naughty or nice’ roulette game as well as take part in a ‘high-low’ card game to win gifts such as festive food and soft drinks, bath bombs and candles.
