Southwark College's Supported Learning students organised a Valentine's Day pop-up event to support the Sense Charity initiative, which helps people with complex disabilities to fulfil their potential. 

The event was a tremendous success, and the students showed their excellent communication skills by selling a wide range of treats, including classic cupcakes, cards, and plant pots, providing something for everyone.

The Valentine's Day pop-up aimed to provide a platform for the students to highlight their talents and creativity by selling handmade Valentine's cards and flowerpots representing their growth and resilience. Each pot symbolises the students' care and attention to their work, making them a perfect gift for spreading love on Valentine's Day.

Scott Peasey, Vice Principal at Southwark College, praised the students' efforts. He said: "We're very proud of our Supported Learning students for their hard work and creativity in setting up the Valentine's Day pop-up event and highlighting the importance of supporting individuals with disabilities. Their initiative is heartwarming and inspiring, showcasing their artistic abilities and the enrichment opportunities that students have access to as part of their course at Southwark College."

Sense Charity helps thousands of people who are deafblind or who have complex disabilities to communicate, experience the world and fulfil their potential.
