PORTLAND College in Mansfield will be holding a fundraising Italian-themed evening next month.

The college, on Nottingham Road, has organised the charity night to raise money for Help for Heroes - which helps wounded servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq.

The college, which has links with serving personnel and veterans of the Armed Forces, also held a Help for Heroes Ball in November.

Wayne Kirkham, HMF project executive at Portland College, says it promises to be a ‘fantastic’ evening for a worthwhile cause.

The event follows a parade of Mansfield soldiers through the town earlier this month, which raised more than £4,500 for Help for Heroes.

The event takes place on 7th October and tickets can be bought by contacting the college on Mansfield 499111.
