Fundraising: The things they do - A monopoly on charity

About 35 Durham University students slogged around London last week visiting every place named on the Monopoly board in a bid to raise cash for charity. Their coach left Durham on Saturday at 4am and didn't return until Sunday at 6am. One team comprising Sarah Knifton (King's Cross), Jenny Hann (Angel), Emma Hay (Bow Street) and Kate Skitt (Vine Street), used their feet, the tube and appeals for directions to find the iconic places. This group raised £180, but the entire team brought in £600 for the university's Young Person's Project, which encourages economically deprived 15 year-olds to stay in education beyond 16.
