A team of young green-fingered volunteers have been getting their hands dirty to give clients at a homeless charity somewhere to enjoy their summer.
As part of their summer holiday project, the volunteers from the National Citizen Service, based in the College of West Anglia, have chosen to offer their gardening skills in the courtyard of the Purfleet Trust in King's Lynn.
A team of 15 volunteers aged between 15 and 18 have repainted and replanted herbs and strawberries in the courtyard over three days.
One volunteer, Victoria Crookes, said: 'We contacted the trust and asked what the team should do. We chose the Purfleet Trust because we all felt passionate about it.
'We are looking for companies in the area to do the decking and provide table and chairs.'
She said donations were made by Wilko, Majestic Cinema and Wards nursery in Ringstead.
