COLLEGE students gave up an hour's salary to help support a children's hospice.

Young adults who are on an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) course at the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CONEL) donated £70 to Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.

Noah’s Ark is running a ‘Building The Ark’ campaign, which sees people ‘Give an Hour’ of their salary towards the construction of north and central London’s only children’s hospice building.

Luiza Dinu, 16, from Romania, said: “When we heard about the charity we all wanted to help these little children.

“They have many problems and are not feeling good.

“Everyone in the class has donated money and hopefully this will make their lives easier.”

Over 1,200 children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions could benefit from the building of The Ark.

CONEL students Gracia Nkodia and Fatou Sarr Ndao, both 16, presented Jules Adams, specialist carer at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, with the cheque.

Fatihma Nafeel, community fundraiser at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, said: “I think its brilliant what the students have done.

“It’s always so inspiring when young people want to help out in this way and we are very grateful for their support.”
