KINDHEARTED STUDENTS BRING A SPLASH OF COLOUR TO CARE HOME
Kind hearted students from City of Wolverhampton College are bringing a splash of colour to a Smethwick care home.
The group of 10 young people, who are all on a Prince’s Trust self development programme, are spending just over a week at Karam Court, Mallin Street, redecorating rooms and sprucing up the garden so that it is more appealing for residents with dementia.
As part of the community project the team are painting the dining and kitchen areas in bright colours as well as trimming hedges.
They raised the cash needed for the work by organising a cake sale in Oldbury town centre and completing bag packs at Asda.
Team Leader Jo Parke said: “The students wanted to give back to the local elderly community and have really enjoyed this project.”
The Prince’s Trust Team programme gives unemployed young people aged 16 to 25 the chance to learn new skills and improve their confidence and self-esteem through a range of outdoor activities, community work and work experience.
