FOOD­BANK BOOST

West Lothian Courier - - District News -

West Loth­ian Col­lege Level 5 Busi­ness and ICT stu­dents are run­ning a pop-up so­cial en­ter­prise within the col­lege in aid of West Loth­ian Food­bank. Cre­ated, mar­keted and ran by the group of stu­dents, The Dona­tion Sta­tion is prov­ing pop­u­lar. Stu­dents are highly en­gaged and mo­ti­vated in the con­cept as they feel they are mak­ing a real dif­fer­ence to so­ci­ety, es­pe­cially in the run up to Christ­mas. A stu­dent in the group said:“The Dona­tion Sta­tion has been a great part of our stud­ies as it has given us real hands on ex­pe­ri­ence in run­ning a so­cial en­ter­prise whilst be­ing for a worth­while cause.” In the process the stu­dents are learn­ing more about the ben­e­fits so­cial en­ter­prises can bring to in­di­vid­u­als and wider so­ci­ety. Well done to all in­volved.
