The Greenock Campus construction department has worked on a project in partnership with the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) and helped build these stunning dog houses. These are now up for auction. There are only three available, don’t miss out, place your bid now! Contact David Coutts at David.Coutts@wcs.ac.uk or on 01475 724433
Around 50 people working with the SAMH have taken part in this project, which has enabled them to develop and improve their practical skills, particularly in the area of DIY. The project has made such a difference in people’s skills base and confidence in their own abilities that a high percentage of them are now progressing to higher level education and paid employment.
Three dog houses that have been built as part of this project are now up for auction. The objective is to raise as much money as possible to support the continuous action of the SAMH. You could get one of these cosy houses for your four-legged friend, while at the same time support this great charity!
To place a bid, please contact David Coutts, Construction Lecturer, at David.Coutts@wcs.ac.uk or on 01475 724433
