Princes Trust team work is blooming good
Posted on 24 December 2012
Young unemployed adults from the Princes Trust Team Programme have created a new raised flower bed for patients at Pilgrims Hospice Canterbury.
Using £500 they raised from donations and sleepers donated by East Kent Timber, the 12 strong group from Whitstable were able to supply materials for the 20 feet long bed. It has been built close to a patio at the hospice and by spring the resulting blooms should offer a colourful backdrop for patients to enjoy.
Hospice manager Stephen Weller said: “The Prince’s Trust Team built the raised flower bed as part of a 12 week programme for adults aged between 16 and 25. The team worked extremely hard, sometimes in difficult weather conditions, to create the raised bed.
“We are extremely grateful to them and very much look forward to seeing the flowers bloom in warmer weather.”
The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is an employability skills programme delivered by CXK in partnership with MidKent College.
