After learning that 3.6 million older people in the UK live alone*, Penarth Group School in Stockport have been breaking down the barriers to link the community together by building a community garden for the local elderly.

As part of the local WE Charity schools programme, students and staff have redesigned the school garden and purchased a garden house with thanks to a grant they received from The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust. Their time volunteering created a wonderful space for young and old to socialise together and appreciate the benefits of being outdoors. They even set up a small stall in the garden to raise money for a local foodbank.

A small independent school specialising in supporting young people with social, emotional and mental health needs; Penarth Group School have also continued their fantastic work by taking part in WE Charity’s WE Scare Hunger campaign, where they gathered food parcels to donate to their local foodbank. 

Deservedly earning their place at WE Day, taking place 4th March at The SSE Arena, Wembley, children at Penarth Group School will be joining other students from all over the UK for a star-studded line up of world-renowned speaks and A-list performers. WE Day is the world’s largest youth empowerment event of its kind celebrating student’s efforts in transforming communities and changing lives.
