STUDENTS have raised up to £800 to support other young people at risk of homelessness.

Victoria Edwards, Lucy Kennedy, Lisa Heathcote, Ellie Street and Jade Merner organised a non-uniform day at St Augustine's Catholic High School to raise money for Redditch Nightstop.

The event was part of their citizenship studies and a wider campaign they are running to raise awareness of the charity's work in tackling youth homelessness and the difficulties with accessing funding.
