Apprentices working for a Chatteris manufacturer have put their skills to good use by making a wheelchair ramp for a member of the town’s Christmas lights committee.
The group working for Stainless Metalcraft made the ramp as part of the company’s Community Fund programme, which provides financial and practical support to 10 different charities around the county.
Established in 1985, Chatteris Christmas Lights is run by volunteers and depends on donations to bring festive cheer to Chatteris throughout December.
Martin Lawrence, commercial director at Metalcraft, said: “The Community Fund is really important to us and helping projects like Chatteris Christmas Lights is a great way to get involved with our local community.
“Our apprentices have done a fantastic job and we hope the wheelchair ramp will prove useful for years to come.’

Chris Savill, chairman of Chatteris Christmas Lights, said: “We’re very grateful to the Metalcraft apprentices who made the ramp.
“Jem Finch, our wheelchair volunteer, said the day the ramp arrived was one of his best days with the group as he can now access the store without having to ask for assistance.”
