VOLUNTEERS got their hands dirty to clear college grounds to make them accessible to disabled students.

Some 63 volunteers from consultancy RPS Group gave up their time last Friday to work in the grounds of Nash College of Further Education in Hayes, helping to make life easier for wheelchair users.

The project, organised by disability charity Livability which runs the college, included making repairs to a patio, clearing a pond and mending a rockery as well as replanting a sensory garden and cutting back an area of elder trees.

John Chamberlain, director of fundraising at Livability, said: "RPS Group's involvement here at Nash College will really benefit the students by opening up new areas of the site. We'd like to thank all the staff of RPS who have worked really hard here."

The outdoor space at the college in Croydon Road can now be used for summer parties and barbecues for disabled students.

More than 65 disabled students attend the college from Bromley and 16 other London boroughs.
