CHARITY AWARD FOR COLLEGE VOLUNTEERS 

11th June 2019

The kindhearted efforts of a group of students at City of Wolverhampton College has earned them an award from a local charit 

A group of 12 students on a Prince’s Trust Team programme, was given the award by the Beacon Centre – which supports people with visual impairment – after building a sensory garden at its centre in Stourbridge.   

The garden features planters made from decking boards and brightly painted tyres, a willow arching fence, herbs, flowers and fruit trees.  Students raised £444 to purchase supplies and equipment by holding a supermarket bag pack, sponsored gym challenge and running a cake and tombola stall.  

The project was part of a range of activities completed by students on the 12-week project which gives 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.       

The next Prince’s Trust Team programme starts in Dudley on July 8 at the African Caribbean Community Network in Abberley Street, DY2 8QY. To find out more about the scheme or sign up for the course call Michaella Evans, Prince’s Trust Team leader, on Tel: 07825 682616
