Jordan Sadler v2A group of students from Uxbridge College has helped transform the gardens of a residential home for adults with learning disabilities.

The nine students on the Prince’s Trust Team Programme spent four weeks planning, fundraising for, and completing the project, with four days working in the grounds. They cleared large quantities of leaves from around disabled access areas, fire exits and garden space, and removed other rubbish and unwanted furniture. Flowerbeds and plant pots were cleared and prepared to be replanted, and the garden furniture and the front and back fences painted. They also redesigned the main patio area to make it easier and more comfortable for residents to use.

Jenna Cowling, Care Manager at Hatton Grove, said: “The young people and staff accompanying them worked very hard indeed, and the garden is now looking lovely – they did a great job!! The students were respectful of the fact they were working in people’s homes, and treated staff and service users with dignity and respect at all times. We cannot wait to have the next group here when the time comes.”

Various fundraising events in and around Uxbridge College, including a personal shopper service at Iceland in Hayes, raised a total of £131.96 in a week to help buy equipment and other materials for the project.

The Prince’s Trust Team Programme for 16-25 year olds is a 12 week course in which the students gain employment, teamwork and community skills.

The students involved in the project were:
