Students team up with homeless to help Stonepillow’s St Joseph’s


STUDENTS teamed up with homeless people at a Chichester charity to create new vegetable patches.

The clients at Stonepillow’s St Joseph’s night shelter, in Hunston, were joined by teenagers from Warblington High School, near Emsworth for the day, to create two new vegetable patches, and clear overgrown areas in the grounds of night shelter.

The night shelter is just one of six projects the charity runs in the Chichester, Bognor Regis, and Littlehampton areas.

Community fundraiser at the charity, Dawn Ingram said the vegetable patches, which were planted with radishes, beans, salad leafs, carrots and sunflowers would be run by clients at the shelter.

“It was a really productive day, everybody really enjoyed it,” she said.

“We created a vegetable patch a few years ago, but there were different clients involved. We are going to run it on a night-by-night basis this time.”
