STUDENTS from Trinity High School Sixth Form have completed their annual collection for St Basils.
In the past the youngsters have collected food for the homeless charity however, last year they decided to aim higher and collect items for starter packs for those who find themselves in need of emergency accommodation, and this year they’ve done the same only bigger.
St Basils have two supported accommodation schemes in St Georges, Redditch.
One is a fully supported for eight young people aged 16 to 23 who have recently become homeless while the second one is for 16 young people working towards independent living.
Starter packs help increase the chances that they will be able to move on successfully.
The students donated a range of items from duvets to dinner plates and toothbrushes to packets of tea and biscuits and collected enough items to make seven complete starter packs.
Headteacher Adrian Ward added: “The school has a great understanding of the challenges young people face and are always enthusiastic to help out for these causes.”
