Students Jasmine McCann has designs on a career in the fashion industry after being award a scholarship by the Lords Feoffees.

The 19-year-old completed a BTEC Diploma in Fashion at East Riding College earlier this year and won a place at the Manchester Fashion Institute, part of Manchester Metropolitan University to study Fashion Promotion.

The Lords Feoffees have awarded scholarship grants to students from Bridlington and the grant of £1,200 for three years is to assist with the costs of studying.

Jasmine said: “Because on the course I’m doing, I’ll be using specialist software like Photoshop, so I want to use the scholarship money initially to buy a Mac book computer so I have the equipment I need to work on my designs.

“It will really help, I can’t wait to start my course and I’ll be keeping the Lords Feoffees updated as to how I’m getting on.”

Course tutor Beth Jacob said: “She worked hard during her time at the college and was one of my most driven and enthusiastic students.

“She’s really creative and madethe most of her opportunities with us, and I am sure she will do the same at university.

“I’m sure the Lords Feoffees have invested in a future star.”
