STUDENTS from Petroc in Barnstaple are putting their endurance to the test with a 12-hour sponsored karting event Le Babies, to help raise money for the Special Care Baby Unit at North Devon District Hospital.

The group of Stepping Stones students will take to the track at the North Devon Go Kart Centre on Pottington Industrial Estate, Barnstaple, next Wednesday (Feb 10).

They have organised the event and gathered sponsorship with the hope of raising money and awareness for the Special Care Baby Unit, the Stepping Stones Programme, the Formula for Success Project and Art on Prescription.

The general public are also being invited to attend and get involved between 6pm and 9pm. By donating �15 or more they will get a 10 minute ride around the track.
