SIXTH-FORMERS and staff at Alton School spent a night under the stars to raise money for Aldershot-based homeless young people’s charity Step by Step.

The sleep-out on November 12 started with the participants watching the Banff Film Festival on a big screen before they settled down in sleeping bags with cardboard on top for extra warmth. The sponsorship total is yet to be announced.

On November 19 all pupils wore yellow and spotty clothes in support of Pudsey and Children in Need. Year 11 prefects raised £257 in a cake sale and the total target is £1,000.
