College students get their hands on a car thanks to Woodford Green dealership
A training college is set to benefit from a new partnership with a nearby car dealership after being given a vehicle of its own.
Dagenham Motors, Chigwell Road, Woodford Green, has donated a car to Waltham Forest College to help develop its training programme.
The vehicle, a Renault Clio, will be used by the college, in Forest Road, to help students get first-hand experience in vehicle maintenance and repair.
Mark Littlefield, sales manager at Dagenham Motors, said: “As a local business we feel it is important for us to contribute to the community.
“The students currently studying for motor vehicle qualifications are the service technicians of the future and we want them to have the best training.”
