A group of students at Bradford College have collected clothes and raised £200 for the city’s homeless.
The students, who are all on a Prince’s Trust course, gathered donations of hats, gloves and other essential items to support people experiencing homelessness this winter.
The charitable work was part of the Team Programme, a 12-week full-time personal development programme designed to equip people aged 16 to 25 with vital skills that will help them get into employment, further education or training.
The programme includes a community project – for which the students chose to focus on assisting homeless people – as well as a work placement and residential.
The students will now work with local charity groups including the Salvation Army, Bradford Nightstop and Bradford Soup Run to distribute the donated items and money to some of the most vulnerable people in the city.
The programme is run by Bradford YMCA, in partnership with Bradford College.
