Prince’s Trust Students Appeal For Donation so they can rejuvenate a local primary school’s garden.

A group of college students have put out an appeal for donations so they can rejuvenate a local primary school’s garden.

The 12 students who are taking part in the Prince’s Trust Team programme at East Durham College’s Houghall Campus have chosen to work on the growing garden used by Year 2 and 3 pupils at Roseberry Primary School in Chester-le-Street.

The team have asked if local people could help by donating herb plants, planting pots, vegetable seeds, wood for fencing and bird boxes.

Prince’s Trust Team Facilitator Greg Corcoran explained: “This garden will form the community project which is a central element of the Team Programme.

“It is an ambitious project and we are going to need some support and that’s where YOU come in. We will be doing some fundraising activities but a lot of our support comes from donations of goods.

“It is a very meaningful project and will benefit many young people now and long into the future.”

If you’d like to help with a donation please call Greg on 07852 774 750 or via the Houghall Campus reception on 0191 375 4700.

The Prince’s Trust Team programme is an exciting free personal development programme for unemployed young people aged 16-25 years. The programme is specially designed to help them to decide on their futures.
