The Chichester and Bognor Regis branches of Covers have donated materials and kitchen units to help carpentry and joinery students at Chichester College.

The donation is part of the timber and builders’ merchant's new sponsorship agreement with the college.

Covers is a long-term supporter of Chichester College, including sponsoring three awards at the college’s Construction Prize Giving in June 2017. The new sponsorship agreement will continue its work to encourage and inspire students hoping to follow a career in the timber and construction trades.

Henry Green, Managing Director at Covers, said: “At Covers, we are extremely proud of our highly skilled team. It is only through courses like those offered by Chichester College that we can continue to welcome new professionals into the trade. We are really keen to support and encourage the next generation so that they can develop their skills and be part of such a rewarding industry. We wish the students the very best of luck with their studies.”

Warren Guildford, Study Programme Leader for Level 2 Carpentry at Chichester College, added: “I would like to thank Covers for its continued support in assisting our students with their studies. Donations like this really make a difference to the overall educational experience, providing the students with the opportunity to undertake practical tasks and develop their skill sets.”
