Students at Northampton College have helped raise £1,500 for a county charity – with the money earmarked to help young people who look after their parents or grandparents.

Proceeds from ticket sales and programmes sold at end-of-year shows by musical theatre and arts students helped raise the huge total for Northamptonshire Carers.

The donation will be used to help fund a range of activities for young carers, such as workshops or respite sessions.
