Students appeal for donations

Students at Heanor Gate Science College are appealing for unwanted items as part of a collection to raise cash for a trip to Borneo.

Next summer 23 students from Years 11 and 12 will be embarking on the trip to help the local people develop their living standards and must raise £3,500 each.

Bags of old clothes, linen, curtains, books, bric-a-brac and any small working electrical items can be dropped off at the school reception.
