Burnley College Sixth Form Centre Engineering students and Themis Engineering Apprentices of all levels worked together to raise funds for food bank and social enterprise Spacious Place, Burnley.
The group raised just shy of £300, which was spent on food and items that the food bank desperately needed to replenish stocks at this busy time of year.
Organiser of the fundraising event, Engineering tutor Joanne Pollitt-Wright said:
“Our young engineers were enthusiastic and engaged with the project, with every single student and Apprentice keen to help out the food bank and the people of Burnley who use it.
They were also extremely organised, letting nearby supermarket Aldi know in advance that the students and Apprentices were planning to purchase large amounts of items and arranged for more stock of those foods to be available for pick-up. They organised the opening of a separate till to save time and the shop even donated all the carrier bags to help us.”
