Students at Mill Hill School carried out their own TV Apprentice-style challenge to raise £150 for Ripley Community Hospital.
The A-level business studies students ran a tuck shop in school and sold home-made cakes to raise the cash.
Student Simon Johnson, 18, said: “We had to put our own money in to buy stock and we didn’t know how much we could sell but by the end of the first day most of our stock had gone. We were asked to vote for a charity and Ripley hospital won by quite a long way. It’s great to be able to help a local good cause.”
Phyllis Holmes, chairman of Ripley Hospital’s League of Friends, said she was thrilled with the contribution from the school.
