PEOPLE undergoing treatment for cancer will be made a little bit more comfortable thanks to a donation from TAFE Western students.

Students in the Certificate III Civil Construction Plant Operation were asked to construct two picnic tables during their course, and now they have chosen to donate those tables to Daffodil Cottage.

“They will get put out in the garden for patients and visitors to use,” cottage cancer care co-ordinator Mooreen Macleay said.

TAFE teacher Terry Patteson said this was the first time the four-week course had been run at the Bathurst campus, and it was a huge success.

The curriculum focuses on a number of areas including power and hand tools, earthworks equipment and workplace health and safety.
