Photography students received highly commended awards for their efforts to make a disused shop space in Crewe’s Market Shopping Centre look picture perfect.

The enterprising South Cheshire College level three students used their own work to create an eye-catching pop-up exhibition in an empty shop window.

Their exhibition, named Unit 21, was part of the Money for Life Challenge, a national competition providing small grants for 16 to 24-year-olds to run a community project and improve their money management skills.

Sylvia Perrins, chief executive for the National Skills Academy for Financial Services, which runs the challenge, said: “This award recognises that students have delivered an innovative and impactful project.”

Unit 21 was one of only 15 projects to be highly commended.
