Students present their funds to Team Jak.

Creative Enterprise students on assisted programmes at West Lothian College put their skills to good use recently raising over £240 for charity TeamJak.

The students created jewellery, ornaments and Christmas decorations on their course, and sold their wares at the college to raise the money for TeamJak.

After looking at charities in West Lothian, the students and their lecturer, Rebecca Nicol, chose TeamJak because they focused on cancer care and looking after families of those diagnosed with and undergoing treatment for cancer.

On the choice, Rebecca said: “TeamJak is a fantastic local charity doing vital work and we’re delighted to see our students’ enthusiasm and creativity making such a positive contribution to the community.”

Creative Enterprise is a brand new course offered to assisted programme students at West Lothian College. It aims to create a friendly and relaxing atmosphere for students, where they can explore their creativity while learning important enterprise skills. Future activities will include an upcycling project.
