Prince’s Trust Team Make a Difference to Henley Centre

07.06.2012

Princes Trust Kettering Team 32A team of fourteen young people from Tresham’s Prince’s Trust’s Team Programme in Kettering have successfully restored the garden for the Henley Centre, a day centre for adults with learning disabilities.

The 12 week personal development course delivered by Tresham aims to improve young people’s skills and confidence to help them move onto further education, training or employment at the end of the course.

Kettering Team 32 raised funds for the Henley Centre to enable them to carry out the renovations for the garden area after choosing it as their community project because of the difference it makes to the lives of the adults with learning difficulties using the centre.

Members of the team gained the support of local superstores who allowed volunteers bag pack for their customers in return for a small donation.

Once completed, the gardens will provide a therapeutic and enabling environment for the adults with learning difficulties to gain transferable skills which will hopefully lead to volunteering and supported paid employment within the local communities.

Dennis Mkurazhizha, Team member from Kettering Team 32 said:

“We chose the Henley Centre as our community project because we knew we could make a real difference. We would all like to say a big thank you to ASDA and Morrisons , their customers and staff as we could not have been able to fund the project without their assistance.”
