First year students studying Level 3 Art, Design & Creative Media at Lancaster & Morecambe College have produced some impressive works of art to promote Morecambe Bay Food Bank over the festive period.

Lancaster mayor Coun June Ashworth presented the students with certificates in recognition of the pieces which will go on display in the town this Christmas.

Students from the Art & Design course have designed promotional posters and Christmas cards for Morecambe Bay Food Bank’s clients and donors. They have also created a contemporary Christmas tree out of tins with a festive theme which will be displayed at Morecambe Christmas Tree Festival later this month alongside some giant sculptures of popular food from the Food Bank’s shopping list.

Students studying Creative Media at the college worked together to create a series of animations and short adverts designed to raise awareness of the cause and promote the Food Bank across new media channels.

Clare Anderson, Art & Design course tutor at Lancaster & Morecambe College, said: “The project has enabled students to develop their creative and practical skills as well as giving them the opportunity to work with a real live client.

“It has really captured their imagination and raised their awareness of food poverty. We are delighted to be able to assist Morecambe Bay Food Bank and have the project recognised by the mayor of Lancaster.”
