The three day project involved the team organising Christmas carol singing, a pub lunch, arts and crafts, a quiz and a bingo session. And there was no time for rest in between running activities as students also joined the residents in their exercise classes!
The team challenge week forms part of their 12-week personal development programme which includes a team building residential course, community projects and work placements at companies such as Marks & Spencer and TM Lewin. The students are working towards a Prince's Trust Certificate in Employment, Teamwork and Community Skills.
Prince's Trust team member, 22-year-old Luke Foames (pictured below) said: "It's really rewarding to know that we've put a smile on lots of faces in the run up to Christmas. The challenge has been a lot of fun but also a great opportunity for me to learn new skills, from working in a team to organising activities, which has really improved my confidence."
The group also sourced quiz and bingo prizes from shops within the borough and received donated Christmas trees from WHSmith. To fund the team challenge, the students helped pack shopping bags at Asda in Clapham Junction and took part in a sponsored walk around Central London where they raised a combined total of £624.92.
The project took place in the penultimate week of the programme, students are now looking forward to next week where they will take part in a final presentation at the College's Wandsworth Campus in front of friends and families to highlight their positive achievements and receive their completion certificates.
