More than one grand was raised for RAG at Langwith’s first ever Spring Formal.

Over a hundred Langwith students attended the meal at York’s Hilton Hotel, before moving onto the Charity Auction.

Lots included meals donated by Yo! Sushi and Nandos and tickets to The York Dungeon, raising £1131 for Hope for Children.

Symone Thompson, Langwith President, said: ‘I’m so happy with the Ball, we raised so much cash for such a good cause and it was great to see so many people having such a good time.

This term has been out of this world for Langwith, with massive successes at Varsity, in the YUSU elections, at the RAG parade, at our own events and this just tops it off.

‘A massive thank you must go to Sean Gater for organising the ball and my Student Association team who have been working so hard to make Langwith the number one college this term!’

Students also snapped up a pair of VIP tickets to Leeds Festival for £600. The VIP tickets, including access to the star-studded VIP bar, were snapped up by students for £600 whilst £70 was bid for a dinner date with Langwith student Jolyon Brown.

Other big bids included the rights to name a room in the college, and the chance to be the ‘Face of Langwith’; which both sold for over £100.

Fliss Turner, who successfully bid £64 for a ‘mystery box’ said: ‘The auction last night was such good fun, a fantastic way to raise money for Hope for Children!

I thought the mystery box was hilarious and I’m so glad I bid for it as I know the money is going towards an amazing charity. The fact that Langwith raised so much money last night goes to show what an amazing college we really are.’
