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.
