Sixth form students helped to keep their local hospital clean and tidy with a litter pick last week.

The students from St Paul’s School spent two hours litter picking in the grounds around Milton Keynes Hospital last Tuesday.

Hospital domestic service manager Adrian Clarke said: “The weather was pretty terrible, but staff and students had a good time and made the grounds so much cleaner.

“We’d like to say a really big thank you to all the students that took part and who helped to make things as nice as possible for our patients.”

The students were given certificates for their efforts, and their participation also counts towards their sixth form syllabus.

A number of hospital staff also joined in the litter picking and were available to answer any questions the students had about the hospital and careers in healthcare.

Adrian explained: “We hope the students found it an interesting day. We are keen to ensure that we keep our site as clear as possible.

“We hope that by seeing the hard work of these students – in the rain – people will think twice about littering around the hospital in future.”
