Have your say

STUDENTS have raised hundreds of pounds to help fund vital breast cancer research in Scotland.

The Edinburgh Students Charity Appeal handed over a cheque for £902.33 to Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Rachel Thompson raised £382.48 by taking part in the Race2Paris event with her flatmate, hitch-hiking from Edinburgh to Paris.

She said: “There couldn’t have been a more fun and interesting way to raise money for them than hitch-hiking to Paris.”
