Funds to help the homeless.

APPRENTICE Myles Midgley's idea for a Christmas fundraiser has left a sweet taste in the mouths of others.

The Kirklees College student earned PS350 for the Salvation Army by running a chocolate tombola.

The tombola was held for Christmas markets in Huddersfield and Dewsbury.

Myles, 18, from Marsh, also raffled a decorated Christmas cake and a chocolate bouquet.

He said: "I was impressed with how the whole curriculum support team pulled together to donate chocolate gifts and help out on the days, and by the amount of money raised by students and staff."

Myles is studying for an NVQ Level Two qualification in business administration.

A small percentage of the money raised went to the college's student event fund, while the majority of proceeds went to helping the homeless and vulnerable.

Myles met Captain Adrian Lee from the Salvation Army in Huddersfield to hand over the cheque. Captain Lee said he was overjoyed at the generous donation.
