A group of St. Albert students are now enjoying their class trip to Montreal that almost didn't happen.

The school group was forced to raise thousands of dollars in a hurry after the tour company disappeared with their money.

But as CBC's Sean Henry reports, the community banded together to raised $133,000 – enough to send the students and their chaperones to Space Camp in Quebec.
