Ashleigh Ganley, 17, Laura Ellis, 18, and Natalie Charles, 24, (pictured) all from Bridlington, have chosen to promote Disneyland Paris and France in general as part of a unit on planning and holding a conference or event.
On December 16, they are doing a sponsored cycle the length of the Channel Tunnel (31.5 miles) in the campus' Energize fitness suite, a car wash dressed as Disney characters and organising a classroom full of France-related activities for fellow students to take part in.
They will also be promoting Ledger coach holidays to Disneyland Paris in the New Horizons Travel Agency at the College, where they learn about travel and tourism by booking holidays for genuine paying customers.
All proceeds from the sponsored bike ride and the car wash will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Ashleigh said: "We're hoping our events will be a great success and that we raise lots of money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
"We've had a really good response from fellow students and from staff, and we're looking forward to the day itself."
