Students donate food and clothing to town's homeless

Public Services students collected food and clothes for Blackpool homeless charity Streetlife.

Teams led by Yasmin Brett, Liv Leek, JC Campbell, Charlie Douglas and Kieran Smith were given the charity challenge which resulted in a much-needed donation as temperatures fall entering autumn.

It wasn't only a great gesture - the students also benefited from the project by learning important communication, initiative, team bonding and leadership skills.

Public Services tutor Glenn Richards said: "Students made a really big effort to pull together a huge haul of food and clothing that will help many people during the coming weeks.

"It's been so successful that we're planning on rolling out this effort for a bumper donation drive across the College closer to Christmas."
