A college student has been presented with a new digital camera after taking part in a local construction contractor’s competition.

East Durham College student Luke Wellburn, who studies on a Level 3 Electrotechnical Diploma, has been presented with the brand new camera from housing and regeneration specialists Keepmoat after winning the company’s health and safety quiz at last month’s Technical Academy trade event.

Luke, 18, from Haswell Plough, was shocked to find out he had won the prize and can’t wait to test it out.

Luke said: “It was a huge surprise to hear I’d won the quiz. Me and a friend just took part on the day as we were walking round the trade event, so to find out that I had won a brand new camera was brilliant. I can’t wait to start using it.”

And Keepmoat are glad to continue their long running partnership with the College and hope it continues.

Gill Sweeney, Lead Resident Liaison Officer at Keepmoat, said: “We have been working in partnership with East Durham College for some time now and many of the students at The Technical Academy have carried out work experience with us.

“We were very pleased to be able to present Luke with his new camera and hope he enjoys using it.”

Part of East Durham College, The Technical Academy is located in a 30,000 square feet purpose-built facility on Peterlee’s South West Industrial Estate. A wide range of construction courses are on offer including plastering, tiling, gas, electric and fitted interiors.
