The project has been running for the last five years and, as well as benefiting the local community, provides students with practical skills and working as part of a team. All the firewood is gathered from the Hartpury estate.
Students and their lecturers delivered the logs to Hartpury’s local postman Vic Smith, who will be storing and kindly delivering the logs to those who have been identified as needing a little bit of help with their winter fuel.
“This is a great project and will benefit those who need a little extra help especially in time for Christmas and the arrival of colder weather. We appreciate the work the students put in and recipients of the wood will be extremely grateful,” says Vic.
Lecturer Alison Aitken said: “This is a great credit to all the students involved, who were prepared to work hard for the benefit of the village. We are proud of their efforts for a worthwhile cause.”
