A local student will be able to finance her studies thanks to a £500 bursary from the Wisbech Lions Club.
Aukse Antanaviciute was chosen as the first person to be presented with the scheme by the community-led group.
Aukse studied Business at the College of West Anglia and managed to achieve the necessary qualifications, with a triple distinction, to gain a place at Coventry University London to study global business management.
Wisbech Lions presented Aukse with a cheque for £500 to help towards her first year expenses.
The group had a hard choice to pick Aukse after receiving several other applications from talented students in the area.
