Students at The Henley College raised more than £3,000 for two charities. They held events throughout the year, including a pub quiz at the Bull in Bell Street, an auction at the town hall, a “battle of the bands” competition , cake sales and bingo at the Henley-60-Plus Club. They were fund-aising for Sue Ryder hospice in Nettlebed and mental health charity Response. The money was presented to the charities at the college’s Rotherfield campus. Jodie Hill, 18, who ran the quiz night said: “It was a great success  with many people attending and we felt a sense of great achievement very proud to have earned a large sum of money.” Hannah McPhee, business, travel and tourism teacher, said: “I was very impressed by the way the students organised themselves in their own teams. I was pleasantly surprised to see their competitive spirit came through to achieve the accolade of being the group who wanted to raise the most money.” Tracey Hancock, head of fund-raising at the hospice, said: “We are so grateful to the students for supporting us and the ttoal they have raised is really impressive.”
