Mature students at Derby College's Ilkeston campus in Pimlico have collected and donated food and toiletries to Ilkeston Arena food bank.
The students are on the Access to Health Professions programme at the College with their sights set on progressing onto University and a range of careers in nursing, midwifery and other health care professions.
Staff from Derby College and a group of local young people have reached the finals of the Prince's Trust annual Celebrate Success awards which will be presented at the London Palladium on March 15 and hosted by television presenters Ant and Dec.
The team, who were based at the College's Ilkeston campus for their 12-week Prince's Trust programme last year, won the regional finals for their community work to support SV2 in Derby which provides counselling and support for victims of sexual violence. They are now in line for the national Team Award.
Work created by mature learners at Derby College's Ilkeston campus is due to be exhibited at the DH Lawrence Birthplace museum in Eastwood.
