STUDENTS at Melbourn Village College organised a charity car wash to help raise money for the Friends of Chernobyl Children Cambridge.
Year 10 students raised £559 for the charity - and staff had to pay £5 for their cars to be cleaned.

She said: "I was most impressed with the students' teamwork. They took it all on themselves. They planned and promoted the whole thing and they all worked extremely hard."
