An innovative businessman donated a 94-piece toolkit to Witchford Village College on Thursday.

Armit Poonia, of RS Innovations, a company which provides innovative products and internet solutions for small businesses, visited the college.

The toolkit was accepted by a group of Year 10 students, head of science Brian Taylor and head of careers Juliet Martin.

The donation comes after Mr Poonia and his team bought the RS Innovations truck to the college.

Jo Gordon, reprographics manager and press officer for the college, said: “Students visited the truck in small groups and had the opportunity to look and use the thermal imaging cameras and 3D Printers as well as other high-tech equipment.
