GENEROUS college students raised £180 to buy dozens of Easter eggs to give to poorly children and adults with learning difficulties.

The boys and girls at Portsmouth College donated 80 eggs to the Beneficial Foundation in Fratton which provides training and rehabilitation to adults with learning difficulties and disabilities.

And 100 eggs were delivered to Queen Alexandra Hospital’s children’s unit.

College principal Steve Frampton said: ‘We’ve got a great relationship with QA and the Beneficial Foundation who both do fantastic work for the city.

‘I’m very proud of our students who are not only working incredibly hard for their studies but always think of others.’

The college stayed open an extra three days this week for 850 students to sit mock papers ahead of their GCSEs, A-levels and Btecs.
