Chadwell Heath students help vulnerable women with donations
Students from a Chadwell Heath school have donated more than �100 along with food, clothes and everyday items to a charity for vulnerable women.
The group of Health and Social Care students and their friends at Mayfield School, in Pedley Road, decided to fundraise for Ashiana.
The charity helps women from Asian, Turkish and Iranian communities get help if suffering from domestic violence.
Teacher Judith Heaven started the project.
She said: “I really feel that with a subject like health, the students should be out in the community doing things.
