Generous students helped raise funds to provide toilets for schools in Kenya, Pakistan and Afghanistan on Tuesday.
Travel and tourism students at Langley College raised more than £380 in aid of Toilet Twinning, an initiative by the charity Tearfund.
Organised entirely by the students, the fundraiser featured international food, music and dance.
Visitors were entertained at the college in Langley Road by dances from around the world and could take part in a raffle.
There was also a DJ at the event where staff and students could donate money to hear a song of their choice.
Selina Kaur, 19, who is studying travel and tourism, said: “Everyone has worked really well together and we have learnt a lot about each other’s cultures, from food and dancing to native costumes and traditions.”
Proceeds from the event will help to provide a school in Mariani, Kenya, with a block of toilets and latrines in schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
