Around 30 health and social care students made 30 boxes for the Salvation Army containing donated toiletries, food and children’s gifts.

They presented the boxes to the charity when they visited the College’s City campus on Granville Road this month.

Ozmah Khan, Curriculum Leader for Health and Social Care at The Sheffield College, said: “Our students were inspired to give something back to our local community after covering the role of the voluntary sector during their course.”

She added: “They were very interested in the work that the Salvation Army and other charities do at Christmas to help others. Some students are now looking at volunteering for the charity in future.”

All of the students donated food items, essential basic toiletries and gifts for children. Childcare students also supported the project by selling hand made Christmas decorations.
