Students from City College Norwich have raised £116 for a disability charity by selling homemade cakes and fudge and home-grown plants.
The fundraising for the Papworth Trust is part of a national School Accumulator challenge to turn £50 into as much profit as possible in just 10 weeks.
The School Accumulator Challenge was launched on November 3 and runs until the end of January 2015. It will be followed by a prize-giving event for the members of the winning teams.
Competing teams of students have been given £50 and 10 weeks to turn it into as much profit as possible.
All funds raised will be donated to the Papworth Trust, which provides essential services for disabled and older people.
