Leeds student hitchhikers

A big thumbs up for Leeds University RAG who have raised £10,000 for Shelter on their annual Amsterdam Hitch!

This February, 69 intrepid hitchhikers set off from Leeds and headed to the Dutch capital, each armed with a ferry ticket, a brightly coloured t-shirt and a map.

The five-day journey included a raucous overnight ferry ride from Hull to Zeebrugge in Belgium and a full day of hitching lifts through the Low Countries.

The students made their way back to Hull via Rotterdam, before arriving in Leeds in time for 9am lectures on Monday morning.

A huge thanks from Shelter to Leeds' student heroes! The £10,000 raised from the trip will make a huge difference to our work helping people find and keep a home.
