Talented Harrison Evans has been given the tools to help him build his dream career in construction after being the lucky recipient of a £200 sponsorship from New Forest construction firm, Pennyfarthing Homes.
For the last five years, Pennyfarthing Homes has been working closely with The Arnewood School to support our students who would like a career in the construction industry. And as part of this, the company sponsors a construction award to reward the hard work and achievements of outstanding students.
This year’s recipient, Harrison, who achieved outstanding results for his BTEC Construction Award said, “I have really enjoyed construction lessons and I was pleased with myself when I came top in the exams, but it was still a big surprise when I won the award. I can now afford to buy some tools with the voucher, and I am looking forward to going to college next year.”
The partnership between Arnewood and Pennyfarthing Homes sees students visiting building sites to learn how the construction industry works in practice. This year nine students visited Pennyfarthing’s most recent development site, Alexandra Meadows, Lymington, where a mix of 2, 3 & 4 bedroom houses are being built.
