Birmingham City Ladies striker Karen Carney paid a visit to Cranmore Infant School last week for the grand unveiling of The Prince's Trust’s new garden area.

The England star was joined by the Mayor of Solihull, local companies and the student’s friends and family. 

The garden project was part of the Princes Trust’s 12 week team programme for unemployed young people based at Solihull College. During the course the team were asked to research and find a suitable location and project within the local community to work on. The young people transformed an over grown area of land into a creative fun area for the school to use for both education and play. 

Carney said “It was an honour to be invited and to support the good work of the students at Solihull College and The Prince's Trust. The transformation was amazing and will be great for the children at Cranmore Infant School."

In addition to the visit Carney donated 150 tickets to last Sunday's FA WSL Blues Ladies v Chelsea Ladies match at Solihull Moors FC. The money raised from the tickets will be used to go towards the upkeep of the garden. 

Of those who enter the programme, the college Prince's Trust Team helps three in four young unemployed people across Solihull and Birmingham into education, employment and training.  The Trust's Team programme provides young unemployed people with a better chance of moving into a job, education or training and provides the opportunity to gain new skills.
