STUDENTS organised a sponsored walk for Barnsley Hospice, in memory of a friend's mum.

The students, from Barnsley Sixth Form College, planned the fundraiser as part of their A level course.

The walk, from the college to the hospice, was held in memory of Emily Goldthorpe's mum, who was once at the hospice.

"I'm really proud of the compassion, commitment and teamwork the group showed to a fellow student," said Maria Sutton, a progress coach at the college.

In total, £182.30 was raised and donated to the hospice in person.

Student Robyn Ball said: "We did this for Emily. We're very proud and happy that we have been able to raise money for the hospice.

Emily added: "I was stunned that they had gone to the trouble of organising this - I really appreciate all they have done."
