Colin Wong, creative director of Edinburgh-based kitchen and bathroom studio Development Direct, has announced his support for a Cambodian School for orphans.
After spending time at the school, Wong decided to donate a proportion of every sale to support the school throughout the year.
In the past, the school has struggled to raise enough funds to remain open for the full year and lacked basic necessities such as power and food.
“It’s obviously a reality check when you see how deprived these children are,” said Wong. “Many of these kids don’t even have shoes and walk to the school simply to get their only meal of the day. You can’t help but feel guilty, especially as it’s such a contrast to the cut and thrust of the kbb industry that I work in. Being in a position to give a little and to see it go so far is more satisfying than any kitchen sale I have ever experienced. I would wholeheartedly encourage others to do the same.”
