A project for a class of Horsham students has provided financial support for Wimmera cancer patients.

Year 11 and 12 VET students in the small business class at St Brigid’s College dedicated their year creating their own range of products which they sold at a pop-up shop in Horsham Plaza. All the money raised from the sale of products was then donated to Wimmera Cancer Centre at Horsham.

Cancer Centre manager Carmel O’Kane accepted the $889 cheque and thanked the students and their teacher Chris Rook on a wonderful effort.

“It’s so lovely to see young people contributing to their community while learning new skills and developing a business acumen at the same time,” Ms O’Kane said.

“We are very grateful to the school and to the class for wanting to support our centre.”
