An Ely timber company has helped students at Cambridge Regional College raise £850 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
AC Timber backed the student-run Charity Woodworking Company by donating wood, which was then used to craft and sell planters, iPad holders and house signs.
Students and staff at CRC have donated £850 to EACH as a result of the wood donation.
Funds were also boosted by commissions which ranged from a memorial bench to a dog basket. The students’ work was recognised in a national competition for student enterprises when it won third place.
Joinery lecturer Mark Piller, who set up the business with his students, said the Charity Woodworking Company had been a very successful initiative.
