Students on the Princes Trust scheme handed over a sensory garden and bush craft area to St Edmund’s Primary School in North Lynn as part of their latest project.

Youngsters aged between 16 and 25 only had three weeks, which included four days on site, to complete their venture.

As well as a bag pack at Tesco’s and a sponsored walk in Thetford Forest, students were given help by a number of local businesses.

MKM Building Supplies gave the students a 50 per cent discount, Tesco gave £35, Creake Garden Centre, at Fakenham, donated all the plants for free.

Dobbies sent wind chimes and plants, while community champions from Tesco and Dobbies provided drinks and donuts on the Thursday.

More exciting things are in store for the students in the next fortnight with work experience and a team challenge where they will go into the community and plan activities for different people.
