A group of sixth formers have been making blankets for children and babies in Ethiopia.

The country’s rubbish dump landslide earlier this month prompted students at Mildenhall College Academy’s ‘Mindfulness Club’ to start knitting blankets for the young victims.

Once finished, they will be sent to teacher Jemma Fifield who is currently in Ethiopia working with young, vulnerable mothers.

The Mindfulness Club is part of the college’s wellbeing/mental health strategy which is aiming to launch a Zumba style exercise club and could soon also include clay based activities.
