The after-school group at the college volunteers to undertake a monthly litter pick, to help keep the local community tidy.
Soham Village College is located less than a mile from Felix Park, a development by affordable housebuilder Orbit Homes.
Sarah Price, Regional Marketing Manager at Orbit Homes, said: “As a not-for-profit organisation, we are committed to making a positive impact on local communities. It’s great to see the students give up their spare time and come together to make such a valuable contribution to society. The high-vis vests are a small donation to help the students stay safe on busy roads, whilst doing their bit to keep their neighbourhood litter-free.”
Lucy Alda, Student Services Manager at Soham Village College, added: “We are very proud to be working with Orbit Homes. Our afterschool club called CATS are passionate about helping the local community in any way we can. One idea was to fundraise for high vis vests and get out into the community to make a positive difference by tidying up the local area. Orbit Homes have kindly donated our wonderful high vis so we can be safe whilst litter picking and be a visible presence when out and about. We are very grateful for their support of our cause.”
