Our vocational students have been rolling up their sleeves to support Sunderland City Council’s ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign.
Over 30 learners from the Hylton Skills Campus took part in a weeding and litter day at The Big Pond at the Community North Sports Complex in Downhill.
The city-wide campaign is running clean-ups across all 25 council wards during the launch week of the campaign.
Dan Patrickson, Enrichment Officer at Sunderland College, said: “We’re delighted to support the campaign which aims to help everyone across Wearside celebrate their local area.
“Here at Sunderland College, we encourage all of our students to lend a hand to help out their community and give something back. We’re delighted to be involved in such a worthwhile campaign.”
Council Leader, Councillor Paul Watson, said: “Love Where You Live is all about inspiring people to think about their communities and take a pride in them.
“It’s about making a difference to where we live, whether that’s joining neighbours in a community clean-up or makeover, or simply just keeping the area round where we live clean and litter free.”
