Industrial Arts Education Student Helps Winnipegger in Need

November 7, 2019

We’re feeling proud!

RRC Accelerated Industrial Arts Education student Dan Spiers is using his time and skills to help a Winnipegger in need. RRC Instructors are coming alongside with the offer of space and tools.

It all began when Dan heard the story on CBC that Stuart Irvine’s bike trailer had been stolen. Mr. Irvine had just launched a small start up picking up recycling and compost and delivering groceries using his bike and trailer. Dan’s passion for cycling and helping people caused him to want to step in.

For all the details, check out the story on CBC:
