Engineering Fundraisers Donate to the Health Tree Foundation
The Motor Vehicle students and the Fabrication and Welding students joined forces to raise £500 for the Health Tree Foundation.
The students have raised over £2000 in total creating garden sculptures. The theme this term included the biggest sculpture to date, Santa on his sleigh with his reindeer. The sculptures were also painted this time by the Paint Refinishing students, which added an extra special touch.
Shane Rhodes (Level 3 Diploma in Vehicle Accident Repair Paint Principle student) said, “The Santas were really tricky to paint and we had to adjust the spray pattern to suit and the technique. It was really good to get involved in a different project and help toward raising money for charity.
Alisha Martin (Level 2 Fabrication and Welding Student) helped with the welding and raised over £300 on her own initiative said, “It has shown that females can get involved just as much as the boys. This has given me an idea for a career, creating garden sculptures. I feel I could start my own business and that is what I want to do.”
Emma Hartley (Health Tree Community Champion) was wowed by the impressive sculptures the students have been making and said, “A great incentive for the students to be involved with. We really appreciate the hard work everyone has contributed and we will keep the College updated on how the money will be spent and how it has been beneficial. Thank you so much, it really is nice to be thought of, being a small local charity.”
