The students are taking part in a Prince’s Trust team programme - a free 12-week course involving charity challenges that helps participants to develop skills and gain a qualification.

Prince’s Trust Team 137 (pictured) have been raising funds for DEAFinitely Independent, a residential home in Leamington for deaf people with learning difficulties - and yesterday (March 18), they re-decorated six bedrooms at the home.

The team’s fundraising activities have included bag-packing at Asda, rowing the distance of Leamington to Paris at the college gym and taking part in a sponsored walk in fancy dress around Leamington and Warwick.
