Achieve delivers in Bilbrough
A group of seven under 16s on The Prince’s Trust Achieve programme in Bilbrough, North Yorkshire, have been working as a team to support vulnerable people in their community during the Coronavirus outbreak by creating care packages.
The young people decided that they wanted to make a difference and soon put together a plan to create the boxes that feature rice, soups and lots of other essentials, as part of their teamwork module.
The pupils planned the budget for each package and thought carefully about the products that would be useful. They have also included personalised notes to recipients to make them smile and improve their wellbeing. The Achieve Leader reached out to her local Parish Council, as a member, to see who would benefit most.
The Bilbrough Country Classroom, an independent school where the pupils attend, have supported the young people by purchasing the items on their behalf and will deliver the boxes, while following government guidelines.
