CREATIVE students have been busy making recycled cushions to raise money for charity and increase awareness of waste problems.

The GCSE pupils, from Derrick Wood School, in Lovibonds Avenue, Orpington, visited the Oxfam shop in Orpington High Street on Friday to arrange a window display of the cushions they made, which are now on sale in the store.

The girls used waste textiles from the shop over the past few weeks to create nearly 40 cushions, which will be sold to raise money for Oxfam.

Charlotte Flint, 15, said: "I have really enjoyed doing this project. It has been fun and exciting, designing and making my cushion.

"It is a brilliant idea that the school is helping to raise money to help the less fortunate countries around the world.
