CARING students from Havering Sixth Form College brought some Christmas cheer to local people by creating festive food hampers.
The Hamper Competition is one of the great Christmas traditions at the college in Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch, and this year it was jointly won by students in the Double Award Health and Social Care class and students tutored by science teachers Nicola Diplock and Nigel Huggett.
The hampers are put together from donations brought in by students and are then delivered to needy families and single people in Havering by The Salvation Army in Romford.
Leisure and Tourism teacher Lisa Barwick, whose students donated a large hamper, is pictured with some of the entries.
Student Liaison Officer David Beesley, who organised the competition, said: “At this time of year it’s good for students to think of others less fortunate than themselves. All the hampers provided were creative and well thought out.
“A special mention must go to teacher Guy Reid who used toys to create a wonderful hamper.”
