Windsor College students provide help for homeless

IMG 3816

Students on the Evolve programme (formerly Personal Options) at Windsor College have helped provide an extra special gift for homeless people in the Windsor area this winter.

In the spirit of the season, the students and staff held a Charity Winter Fair at the College in St Leonards Road on Wednesday (7th December). Raising £280 for local charity The Windsor Homeless Project, which provides food, friendship and support for homeless people, the fair included a variety of stalls, games and a raffle as well as selling delicious cakes kindly donated by The Handmade Cake Company.

Lecturer Liz Wheeler, explains: “Every year the students on our Evolve programme, who have learning difficulties and/or disabilities, organise events to raise money for charity as part of their course. As well as supporting a worthy cause, the events also help the students to develop their literacy, numeracy and communication skills.”

Windsor College’s Evolve programme (formerly known as Personal Options) is an entry-level course for people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. For more information on the College's Evolve programme and foundation learning courses, please click here or call 01753 793000.
