Learners in rubbish effort

Donning their high-vis jackets and litter pickers, a taskforce of staff and learners from Salford City College kicked off a volunteering campaign to help clean-up the local community.

Following a number of meetings between the college and local residents, it was decided that students should engage more with the community.

The team will carry out a variety of projects including litter picking neighbouring streets and fundraising for the college’s chosen charity, St Ann’s Hospice.

“This project is a fantastic way for both the staff and students to give something back to the local community, and to thank them for their ongoing support for the college,” said Salford City College’s principal, John Spindler. “I’m looking forward to donning my pink high-vis along with my fellow volunteers.”

At the end of the year, the learners who take part will be presented with a special award of thanks at the college’s student awards.
