Five flower planters constructed by carpentry students have been given to a children’s hospice.
The Barking and Dagenham College pupils created the wooden tubs for a skills competition, ‘Inspiration 2013’, earlier this year.
Not wanting for anything to go to waste, they decided to donate the planters to the Richard House Children’s Hospice in Newham.
The hospice also received £650 of John Lewis vouchers bought from the proceeds of a raffle run through the college’s skills competition by business administration apprentices Chloe Bailey, 19, and Sacha Lempriere, 18.
The raffle raised a further £650 that was used to buy three 32-inch televisions to Saint Francis Hospice in Havering.
