A GROUP of Suffolk students have raised £300 for charity, Suffolk College announced today.

In a joint effort to raise money for people with multiple sclerosis, public services students enlisted the help of fellow catering students to hold a fund raising event recently at Suffolk College.

A college spokesman said: “Inspired by a trip on the high speed rigid inflatable boat the Coastal Voyager at Southwold last year, they decided to help the crew of the boat with their fund raising programme for multiple sclerosis as part of their own citizenship project.

“The public services students invited the crew of the Coastal Voyager to Suffolk College to give a presentation on their recent world record-breaking Round Britain trip, which was aimed at raising funds for the charity.”

The presentation was given to invited guests and included a talk prepared by the students and a presentation of a limited edition print of Coastal Voyager to student Craig Hoskins in recognition of his dedication and hard work on the project.

The spokesman added: “In addition the students undertook collections around the campus as well as selling cakes made by the catering students. £300 was raised in just under four hours but that is not the end of the story as the students plan a return trip on the fast boat and a formal cheque presentation of the monies raised.”
