QE Students Continue to Help the Community During LockdownDate Posted: 02/06/2020 | Posted In: Latest news
Lockdown has proved challenging for everyone, however it has been wonderful to hear about how our students have managed to remain proactive and positive during this time. Some have learnt new skills whilst others have had the opportunity to do a variety of things which have had a positive outcome for both themselves and local communities. These are just some of the stories they have shared with us:
Students from QE’s Interact Club have continued to support the local community during the COVID- 19 pandemic. During the lockdown, members of the College’s club have sent over 1,500 letters to the most vulnerable members of the community and provided party supplies to residents of Abbeyfield Darlington Society ensuring their VE Day celebrations went off with a bang. The students have also donated healthcare items, sweet treats and over 100 homemade scrub bags to key workers within the County Durham and Darlington NHS Trust.
