Cedars students joined forces with 4YP UK for National Youth Work Week to ‘Give an hour’. This year National Youth work week is all about young people learning new skills and giving an hour to give back to their community.

Cedars students worked with 4YP Youth Workers Gemma Winn and Ashleigh James to come up with a list of ways they could give back.

They decided they wanted to make something that could be donated.

After talking to local community groups it was decided that the young people would make bird feeders for Knolls Care Home. The young people worked really hard to make 15 individual bird feeders and four gift presentation boxes for the care home.

The residents at Knolls were delighted with bird feeders.

A spokesman said: “We are thrilled that the students thought of us.

“The residents were very engaged and look forward to seeing the bird feeders in situ.”
