STUDENTS raised more than £10,000 for a charity that helps women with cancer.

Portsmouth High School’s head girl team were delighted to donate £10,593 for The Haven, a national charity offering breast cancer support.

Throughout the year, the students held events to raise money and awareness.

Deputy head girl Genevieve Wilks said: ‘We decided to choose The Haven because it is a cause that has a positive effect on breast cancer sufferers.

‘It affects many people’s lives and we believed The Haven is a charity the whole school would get behind, and we were right.’

The Haven, which has a centre in Titchfield, offers advice on money and work, combatting stress, exhaustion and nausea, advice on healthy eating and exercise.
