A Worcester school has said a heartfelt thank you to university students who helped transform their garden.

Seb Gijsbers, Sam Grimes, Dan Millard and Jack Downie from the University of Worcester created a sensory garden at Fort Royal Community Primary School.

The work was part of a business challenge and their project, Thyme or money? won the outstanding innovation award.

The school uses outdoor learning to enhance the learning opportunities for the children who have a range of special educational and physical needs and the new area will help develop senses in taste and smell.

Jack Downie said: "The planting will be a lasting contribution from us to the children at Fort Royal School.

"We had a great time working with them."

Margaret Jones, grants administrator at the school: said,"It was a pleasure working with the students.

"They were really committed to the project and we really enjoyed the whole process of working together."

Five groups from the university's business school agreed to raise money and the profile of the school as part of the challenge.

Mrs Jones said: "The other groups who chose to work with us at Fort Royal raised over a £1,000 which was amazing, organizing coffee mornings, fun days, sponsored walks and cake sales which means we can now purchase some new sensory equipment."
