Students from across the Institute recently took part in a volunteering afternoon of litter picking on the Nunsthorpe Estate in Grimsby with Councillor Norma Lincoln.

The students along with Institute staff, the Inspiring Enterprise team and members of North East Lincolnshire Council's Neighborhood Operation’s team took part in the event.
The students demonstrated excellent communications skills, team working and citizenship through- out the activity. CPRE Branch Development Officer, Cath Farrell said:
"It's great to see all of these young people here today taking part in the litter picking event. It gives them a real sense of pride in their surroundings."
Councillor Norma Lincoln said:
