At the very start of their course Level 3 Business students stepped up to the coffee pot to raise £825.10 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The students worked hard to plan, organise and execute the event, held in Ashfields, the College's training restaurant. Business student Ashley Grant said: "Our class thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the project, from start to finish. Just to help out and be able to support such a great charity which is close to a lot of people's hearts makes it all worthwhile."
Students and staff supported the event by baking cakes and biscuits and providing raffle prizes, whilst Ashfields' chefs were on call to make bacon and sausage sandwiches for the hungry customers. Food suppliers Millers and M & K Butchers donated food and the York stores, Give the Dog a Bone and Betty's & Taylors donated gifts for the raffle.
Deb Pearson, tutor of Hospitality, Travel and Tourism who over saw the event said: "The students did a great job planning and organising a fabulous coffee morning. The event helped them perfect their customer service and team planning skills, which will lead onto building their entrepreneurial skills for the future. The fact that they raised over £800 in the process is just fantastic!"
