The art and design department at Melbourn Village College has received a cheque for £500 and two pieces of original artwork in memory of a former student.
Talented artist Steven Law, who was a pupil at the school from 1983 and 1988, died in August after a long illness.
But his family has not forgotten where Steven’s talents were initially nurtured and developed and has asked the college to spend the money on the next generation of budding artists.
Principal Simon Holmes said the school plans to spend the money on frames to display the work of artistically gifted and talented students around the school and further afield.
He added: “We are extremely grateful to Steven’s family for the artwork and the donation, and hope to use them to create a legacy that will continue to inspire young artists and graphic designers for many years to come.”
Steven Law went on to become a graphic designer, working for a number of companies in Cambridgeshire before his death in the summer aged just 43.
The donated artwork are pictures of boxers Simon Brown and Evander Holyfield drawn using fine-tipped felt pens.
