THE latest recipients of Waitrose Give a Little Love Campaign are Holsworthy Community College which was focused around environmental.
A cheque for £750 was presented to Mr Vanstone, head of expressive arts and PE at Holsworthy Community College, on behalf of the school which will go towards its recycling and tree planting projects.
As part of its environmental aims the school will use the funding to enhance its recycling programme.
Mr Vanstone said the funding will allow them to continue to support the student council in running a recycling programme and invest in recycling bins for students to use around the school site.
The school’s environment tree project will also benefit from this funding. Mr Vanstone said: “We have planted 450 trees around the school site but maintenance of these trees (they need spraying, and grass/weed maintenance in order to survive. This area will be used by students as an area to go to help with mental health and well being.”
Mr Vanstone added: “We will also supply plants for our students to plant in staff/student areas in order to have a sense of achievement in looking after these and again a place where they can go to support mental wellbeing.”
