HEART of Worcestershire College’s (HoW College) Special Educational Needs (SEN) students have raised more £500 for the Primrose Hospice working in an onsite shop at the College’s Peakman Street Campus, Redditch.
The shop, which opened in November 2018, was exclusively open to college staff and students and sold everything from clothes and board games to DVDs and trinkets, supplied by the Primrose Hospice.
As part of their work experience, the students took responsibility for restocking and pricing products, as well as greeting and serving customers.
Talking about the project, work placement coach, Annette Gardner said: “The shop has given the students a fantastic opportunity to learn about how a business operates, and allows them to gain work experience alongside their courses.
“I am so proud of the students and the money they have raised for the hospice.”
