Construction students in inter-island challenge

Construction students at University College Isle of Man (UCM) will put their skills to the test this month in a first ever inter-island challenge.

They'll take on students from Highlands College in Jersey to determine the best amongst different trades such as painting and decorating, plumbing, carpentry and joinery on March 15.

Following that, some of the items produced by those taking part will then be auctioned off with proceeds going to six charities including the RNLI, Dan Kneen and Heroes on the Water.

It'll take place in the Baillie Scott Wing at UCM on Homefield Road, Douglas, on the day from 10.30am.
