HONITON Community College is to hold a non-uniform day on Friday, January 22, to raise money for those affected by the earthquake in Haiti.

Alison Rutherford, who is the ECM (Every Child Matters) co-ordinator for the college, said:

"We feel it is our duty to help ease the suffering in Haiti and donate as much money as possible to the DEC (Disaster Emergency Committee). We need your help to raise as much money as possible, as quickly as possible.

"We are proposing to hold a non-uniform day on Friday, 22 January on which students can wear their own clothes in exchange for a donation. We are also proposing that we act as a collection point for parents and carers to donate as much as they can to help ease the Haitian's suffering."
