Students from the Aviation Academy have raised nearly £60 for charity following a tuck shop sale.
The shop, based at the airport campus, was organised and run as part of a module the students are studying on the Aviation Operations Level 3 which aims to develop their project management and employability skills.
On offer to buy were a large selection of sweet and savoury snacks including crisps, chocolate and buns, all brought in by the students themselves.
The total amount raised added up to £58.61, all of which is being donated to PC David Rathband's Blue Lamp Foundation which helps police officers, paramedics and firefighters who have been injured by criminals.
Caroline Jolliffe, tutor on the course, was particularly impressed with the groups' entrepreneurial skills. She said:
"They have all put in so much effort to raise this great amount off money. They were responsible for everything including the marketing of the event, the buying of the stock and the setting up of their stall. A fantastic effort by all."
