A FUND launched by Priestley College has helped more than 120 young people on the way to making their dreams a reality.


Since September the Priestley Education and Training Trust (PETT) has provided bursaries worth £7,646 to 73 students to help them pay for transport, trips, materials and equipment.


Matthew Grant, Priestley’s deputy principal and chairman of PETT, said: “As a college this is something of which we are very proud and delighted to see the difference it is making to the lives of so many young people.


“We estimate that around 150 young people will benefit each year and that has been made possible thanks to the support of parents and local businesses.”


A number of students have also received scholarships from the trust and 48 past students were also awarded financial help to the tune of £4,000.


Many parents have made donations to the registered charity as their children apply for places at Priestley after the college waived its application fee.
