Five students enrolled on the 12-week Prince’s Trust programme have given a community centre playground a new lease of life.

The group from the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London spent one week working at Play Space, a voluntary-run under-fives community centre playgroup that has served families in North London since 1992.

The students repainted the building, doors and gates, renovated benches and also did a spot of gardening, removing weeds and tidying up plant troughs.

Part of the Prince’s Trust programme required students to take part in a community project and, after searching for a worthy cause, they decided to support the Play Space centre.

They raised money for equipment they needed for the project by setting up a stall and selling tea hampers and Fair Trade chocolates.

Centre Manager and Trustee Nisha Morgan said: “When I saw what the students had done I couldn’t believe how much it had changed. Now we have a very special place for the children to go out and play, which is a much brighter, safer and cleaner environment for them to enjoy.”
