Last academic year, an incredible 300 City of Bath College students gave up their time to benefit the local community.
Some of these students were rewarded for their volunteering at a special ceremony held at the College. College Principal Matt Atkinson presented certificates to the learners in recognition of their hard work.
Simon Selby from Avon and Somerset Police also attended the event and thanked the students for their hard work and contribution to the local community.
The volunteering projects the students have been involved in include community clean-ups (picking up litter, painting, removing graffiti), packing shoeboxes for the local Operation Christmas Child appeal, fundraising and taking support roles at events such as the successful Bath Skills Fair and Bath’s Christmas lights switch-on.
Rob Heyes, Student Participation Coordinator, said: “Our students are always keen to give up their time to help benefit the local community.
“Encouraging students to get involved with volunteering projects is a key part of what we do at the College and it’s great to see how much they enjoy helping out with important community projects in the local area.”
