As Sally Ann's had been so helpful to them, they elected the Salvation Army as their chosen charity.

They obtained a collection box and during both a litter-pick and cake sale they collected £133.15.

The students presented the full box to Chatteris Corps representative Gerald Day and Ann Matthews.

The National Citizen Service programme is government funded and open to 15 to 17 year old students who want to challenge themselves with new experiences.

It is a four-phase programme which offers many opportunities to develop new skills and abilities.
