Redbridge pupils lend helping hand to youth causes
Pupils at Redbridge Tuition Service helped two charities supporting young people by holding a coffee afternoon on Tuesday.
Students aged 11 to 16, who are temporarily out of mainstream education, welcomed neighbours and friends to the pupil referral unit in Starch House Lane, Barkingside.
It was their fourth annual coffee afternoon and proceeds of �180 will go to Haven House Children’s Hospice, in High Road, Woodford Green, and the Indigo Project, a club for young carers. Deputy head Elaine Janes said: “It went really well, it was a fun afternoon.
“The pupils are always keen to help other youngsters who are overcoming challenges in their lives.
“There are some great young people out there and I am proud to say that many of them attend RTS.”
