BIG-hearted Halesowen College students teamed up with a coach company to help brighten the lives of vulnerable people with the creation of a planting display at the centre they visit.

Stourbridge-based Prospect Coaches donated £75 to buy the plants which students have been planting at the Hope Centre, Andrew Road.

College course leader Hazel Hodgson said: “We are delighted to be able to support the centre with this donation. The students have very much enjoyed doing the planting and thanks to Prospect Coaches for their kind donation.”

The centre caters for people who are lonely, vulnerable or need a chat with support groups for those suffering depression, struggling with poverty or loneliness.
