Students benefit from specialist equipment donation

Public services students at Sunderland College will further benefit from state-of-the-art, industry standard equipment thanks to a donation from SafeGuard Clothing.

SafeGuard Clothing, a leading manufacturer and distributor of protection equipment to military, law enforcement and security operatives, has donated a premium bullet proof vest to Sunderland College.

Thomas Bowman, Communications Manager at SafeGuard, said:

“Our donations are intended to take the student learning experience inside the classroom to the next level. Students use and wear the bullet proof vest to gain a more realistic experience of how to apply safety equipment in their day-to-day activities in their future line of work in the public service field.”

Under its donation initiative, SafeGuard Clothing has presented a number of colleges with bullet proof vests. Sunderland College is the latest to receive a sample of the brand’s premium body armour to provide students with hands-on experience in working with safety equipment and understanding how it relates to other aspects of their chosen field of work.

John Rushworth, Faculty Director for Sport, Health and Wellbeing at Sunderland College, said:

“We are thrilled with this generous donation, which will further support us in providing our students with real life experience and the skills to help them prepare for their future career.”
