Leek and Potato Soup and the Compass Centre
It is not only the Justlife garden where vegetables are growing in abundance. This week, a group from the pupil referral unit at Wright Robinson College “The Compass Centre”, have grown the ingredients for leek and potato soup, created cooking-pack-food-parcels and donated 30 packs to Justlife.
The group of young people are working towards an ASDAN volunteering qualification and have been working on Edge Lane Allotments since January. The group planned the project and picked, planted and prepared the ingredients.
The students wanted the food to go to local people in need so Justlife was nominated. The Justlife centre is situated between the allotments and the school so ideally located to be involved in the project.
The project has helped the young people explore their values and opinions and do something to help others. The young people had a great sense of achievement and service users at Justlife are looking forward to making leek and potato soup!
Thank you to all of the young people who have been involved in the project… your generosity and hard work is very much appreciated by Justlife.
