16th September 2016 - Islwyn MP congratulates ILS students for community project

Islwyn MP congratulates ILS students for community projectIslwyn MP Chris Evans has congratulated the ILS students at Coleg Gwent Crosskeys Campus for the fantastic community work they have been doing after being invited to see the progress of their sensory garden.

The garden is currently a work in progress in a central part of Crosskeys College and Independent Living Skills students have been raising funds towards the community project, including a sponsored silence in March which raised £635. 

Community spirit is at the heart of the project, but students taking part have also used the project to develop skills in fundraising as well as the range of other important life skills.

Mr Evans said: ‘It is very pleasing to see the huge progress the students have made on the sensory garden. They should be very proud of all the work they are doing in their community.

‘I was so impressed with the students’ enthusiasm that I donated some extra funding towards the project to ensure they can make the garden the best it can possibly be.

‘I know that once the garden is finished it will be a truly wonderful community asset in Crosskeys College. The community spirit of the students and staff involved is an inspiration and I look forward to visiting again in the near future.’
