CHARITABLE students presented a cheque to Saffron Walden Community Hospital after raising £625 hosting a Christmas variety show.

A group of A-level Leisure Studies students at the County High School organised the event to donate cash to the League of Friends of Saffron Walden Community Hospital – which helps enhance the stay of patients by raising money for new equipment, facilities and services.

Magicians, dancers, singers and musicians all took part in the festive variety show, which kicked off charities week at the end of last year.

Avril Brookes, from the League of Friends for the hospital, was on hand to accept the cheque at a presentation last month.
