Huntingdon Prince’s Trust team offers help to the homeless
Students and staff offered a helping hand to Huntingdon and Peterborough’s homeless people by handing out blankets to vulnerable people in need.
The team from the Prince’s Trust at Cambridge Regional College’s Huntingdon campus took to the streets to give practical help after collecting warm clothing and blankets to hand out as the temperature plummeted.
Dean Boyall, the Prince’s Trust team leader at Huntingdon, said the group wanted to provide some practical help to those in need.
“We held a collection at college for warm clothing and blankets,” he said. “We came over to Peterborough because we knew there were homeless people in the city centre, and we had collected so many blankets. We also handed out some of the items in Huntingdon.”
There are eight young people on the course, with three – Daniel Duell, Jeremicko Onrubia, and Dylan Healy – handing out blankets in Peterborough.
The Prince’s Trust programme is a free, action-packed course focused on giving young people the skills to get a job or progress in to an apprenticeship or further education course, with work placements and residential trips during the 12-week programme.
Cambridge Regional College runs three Prince’s Trust programmes a year at Cambridge, Huntingdon and Wisbech, with the next programmes starting on 22 January 2018. For more information and to apply see http://www.camre.ac.uk/princes-trust/.
