As part of their Christmas activities this year at Melton Vale Post 16 Centre, staff and students decided to do something to give back to the local community.
On Tuesday, the sixth form delivered around 60 Christmas hampers to people who are supported by the Age UK Gloucester House in Melton.
The donated hampers contained practical items such as pasta, soup, tinned vegetables and fruit, but also some Christmas treats such as chocolates and biscuits.
Teachers and project co-ordinators, Mrs Murton and Mrs Roberts, said: “Within their tutor programme, students at MV16 explore a range of issues beyond the curriculum that are important for living in modern society, from multiculturalism, to personal finance, to supporting the local community.
“We’re pleased to be able to work with Age UK to bring some Christmas joy to the older members of the local community through this appeal.”
