STUDENTS at a St Neots school collected spare change to raise vital funds for a charity that helps victims of poverty, famine and natural disasters.
Within a few hours, a group of pupils at St Neots Community College had collected more than £50 in pennies and two-pence pieces from fellow students.
The money will be given to the Samaritans' Purse Turn on the Tap appeal and used to purchase a water filter to enable one African family to have a supply of safe, clean water.
Daniel Berry, head of science at the college, who organised the fundraise,r said: "We're really pleased that we actively supported this important initiative. While the prime objective of this event was to raise money to buy a water filter there was another important issue involved. That was to look at more closely and to see how we could help those communities in the different parts of the world that suffer from poverty, natural disasters and famine."
