THEY could paint the town red to celebrate their latest success.

Chris Shaw and Jack Marshall, both painting and decorating students at Doncaster College, were entered for the regional heats of Skillbuild, the Sector Skills Council and Industry Training Board for the construction industry, which was held at Leeds College of Building.

The competition covered all aspects of the painting and decorating trade and tested the competitors’ abilities to the full.

Jack, who works for Bagnalls of Doncaster, won a silver medal in his intermediate competition and will be representing Doncaster College in the senior event next year.

Chris, who works for Oak Apple Décor, won gold in the senior competition. He will represent the college in the national finals in September.

Winning is becoming a regular habit for Chris – he has just won Dulux’s National Apprentice of the Year.
