For the second year running, Cosentino is providing one of its Elite Studios a 50% scholarship, to send a member of their staff on the Foundation Degree course in Kitchen Design at Buckinghamshire New University.
The recipient of the 2018 50% scholarship is Allie Daden, owner and head designer at Daden Interiors, based in Fleet.
