Students from Barking and Dagenham College have graduated from an environmental volunteering programme.
The students, aged between 16 and 24-years-old, took part in community projects including maintaining Barking Park and Eastbrookend Park, litter picking, trimming bushes and maintaining the grounds of Valence House Museum in Dagenham.
The six-month, full-time vInspired Eco Talent volunteering programme aims to develop skills which will either help students land a job or get into further study.
The students celebrated at The Swan, located at Shakespeare’s Globe. The event was held on Friday.
Tutor Teressa Brantlova said: “It was an excellent celebration of all their hard work and achievements.
