Worcester College of Technology students aged 19 to 25 with severe learning disabilities carried out the clear-up in the St Andrew's Gardens next to the college as part of Worcester City Council's annual Take Pride campaign today (Friday, May 9).

"The students will also be sorting the rubbish into recyclable and non-recyclable waste – another important skill to develop.”
