Students at St Andrews University are aiming to raise more than £100,000 for charity this year.
The Student Association confirmed it had already raised £90,000 and was on track to meet its target.
The money for the Association’s Charities Campaign has been raised through a variety of ways from the annual 'Raising and Giving (RAG) Week', which generated more than £22,000, to a sponsored hitch hike 'Race2 Barcelona' which has gathered more than £36,000.
The total raised will be distributed to numerous causes, with the majority going to the local centres for charities including the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, Macmillan Cancer Support, Cancer Research UK, Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres and the Children's Hospice Association Scotland. Part of the total raised will also go to Médecins Sans Frontiéres.
Michael Koudounas, the University of St Andrews Charities Campaign Convenor for 2011/12 said: "It's amazing to see students, staff and members of the community come together to recognise all the brilliant work undertaken by St Andrews students over the year.
“This funding will have such a great impact both locally and further a field. It's something we should all be really proud to be a part of."
