A former Wisbech student has raised £157 for a charity for The Purfleet Trust, a charity that helps the homeless.
Megan Wiley, 18, studied Level 3 fashion at the College of West Anglia, completing her course earlier this summer.
As part of her final major project, Megan travelled to a number of towns and cities in the area, photographing people living on the streets.
She translated the image into sketches and hand-printed the designs onto tote bags.
During the college’s end-of-year art exhibition, she sold the piece to raise money for The Purfleet Trust, reaching £157.
The Purfleet Trust was set up as a charity in 1993 to provide help for single homeless people in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.
Its services include housing advice to help people find accommodation, support to help them maintain their tenancies, and a health and wellbeing centre providing a daily hot meal and the opportunity to gain life skills.
The centre can be used as a postal address and there is free access to both computers and the telephone.
