KIND-HEARTED students at an Amble school have raised hundreds of pounds for charity.

Youngsters from James Calvert Spence College (JCSC) collected £820 for Grace House North East Children’s Hospice Appeal, which is raising funds to build, equip and run a children’s hospice for children across the region.

The sum was raised by Year 12 and 13 pupils over the 2010/11 school year.

They were given £5 as a group project and used that to raise more funds for Grace House, which was their chosen charity.

The youngsters made their cash grow by holding various events, including coffee mornings, cake stalls and a soup kitchen, as well as an auction to sell off the old Coquet High School letters.

JCSC students will take up the challenge again this year and are currently deciding which charity they want to support.
