Students lend a hand to local charity

Level 2 Carpentry students came to the rescue when local charity Clymping Dog Sanctuary put out a plea for help to renovate their kennels.

The students worked alongside a carpentry contractor to create warm comfortable bases with the use of plywood board and rigid thermal insulation covered with Altro vinyl to give a sleek hygienic finish.

They also helped to erect a storage shed, as well as whitewash brickwork to give the whole place a refreshed look and feel.

Martin Kiely, Carpentry & Joinery lecturer, said, ‘Being involved was very rewarding work all round. To combine simulated learning in a college environment with work experience is vital, especially for those students who have not had the opportunity yet to gain industry experience’.
