Sixth-formers volunteer at local charity for disadvantaged youngsters

Twenty sixth-formers have been volunteering at a charity that supports young people with disabilities and those from disadvantaged backgrounds in London.

The group, from Westminster’s DLD College London, spent time at Ambition Aspire Achieve’s Terence Brown Arc, a centre providing care and support to young people with disabilities and additional needs, and their families.

During their visit, the students spent time playing games with children at the centre, before donning rubber gloves and cleaning the communal areas, tidying up the garden and even chopping up old trees for recycling. “The students left behind a greatly improved building and grounds, making a real difference.

I hope everyone enjoyed attending the event as much as we did hosting,” said Kevin Jenkins OBE, the founder of Ambition Aspire Achieve. “Our students were fantastic on the day and were a great representation of the college.

They worked incredibly hard and it was inspiring to see them so enthusiastic about helping this worthwhile cause,” added Gareth Evans, director of studies at DLD College London.
