Christmas cards and crackers made by students with learning disabilities will be on sale at City of Wolverhampton College next week.

Eight students who are on a Futures programme at the college’s Wellington Road campus will be holding the Christmas sale on Tuesday December 6, 10am-3pm.

All items on offer – including Christmas stockings, candle holders and jars of sweets – have been made by the students who have also collected items for a festive hamper which will be raffled off in aid of The Beacon Centre for the Blind.

Paula Van Ommeren, high needs provision manager at the college, said: “The students used a range of practical skills to make the Christmas goods and are very much looking forward to setting up their stall and selling them to customers.”
