A lucky Derby College student dashed his way through a builders’ merchants to win £250 of tools.

Six apprentices from the Ilkeston campus took part in the competition at Travis Perkins, where they each had 60 seconds to fill a wheelbarrow with tools with the nearest to £250 winning its contents.

And young apprentice builder Zack Haslam came out on top.

Lee Pratt, Derby College Construction team manager, said: “Having invested more than £3m in a new construction academy and further facilities currently being built at a new llkeston campus, we were delighted to be given the opportunity to participate in the merchant sweep.”
