A TEAM of hard working volunteers are thrilled to have had the chance to provide a nature area for students in Fishermead.

The group of young people aged 16 to 25 embarked on the task as part of a voluntary project by The Princes Trust.

They selected Penwith School as they felt it was a great opportunity to give something to an area that has recently been through a difficult time.

The team – called MK44 – got involved in fundraising for the project and raised in excess of £600 by conducting a bag pack, hosting a raffle, selling cakes and completing a sponsored abseil.

The hard work really began when they started work on the strip of wasteland at the back of the school site when – after clearing the area – the volunteers spent days digging in order to lay a pathway down and put in stepping stones.

Headteacher, Sophie Good, said: “The commitment and effort of this team of young people has been inspirational.”

Students at the school are now looking forward to using their outdoor classroom to bring lessons to life.
