Hornchurch college students have raised £400 for a Havering homelessness charity as part of their business course. 

The New City College pupils made hampers , cards and organised raffles and competitions on March 31, just before the Easter holidays, to support Hope4Havering.

Deputy principal Ian Budge, who picked the winning tickets for the raffles and competitions, praised the college’s “kind” and “socially aware” young people.  

He said: “They have gone above and beyond to raise an exceptional amount for such a worthwhile charity. 

“Young people often get a bad reputation in our communities, normally at the expense of a very small minority."

He added: “They have worked on behalf of people less fortunate than themselves and they are a credit to their families, the college and most importantly, to themselves.” 

The students are all studying the introduction to business level one diploma at the Ardleigh Green campus in Hornchurch, and course tutor Angela Ayettey thanked Ian for supporting the students.
