Students share the spirit of Christmas with a new charity sleigh.

Students collaborate on a sleigh project with the Basingstoke Round Table.

BCoT students have been busy getting festive on a special sleigh project in collaboration with the Basingstoke Round Table. 

Students enrolled in automotive, construction and art courses have worked together to design, build and decorate a new charity sleigh, ready for the Round Table tour of Basingstoke this December. Santa and his elves will be touring different areas in the town, from Kempshott to Old Basing, raising money for charities.

Students started the project from scratch and it involved a great deal of planning and teamwork, working to a specific brief. The sleigh was officially handed over by the students to the Basingstoke Round Table on Wednesday 7th December at 3pm, ready for the start of the tour. 

Dave Trevelion, Course Director for Construction at BCoT said, “Community projects like this are invaluable to our students. The experience they’ve had will benefit them in so many ways. The project is for a good cause and they’ve utilised their skills to deliver a truly festive, high-quality sleigh. The Basingstoke Round Table supports many local charities, providing support in the local community. We are proud to be a part of this year's campaign and proud of our students’ work.”
