Bury College students rolled up their sleeves and donned their aprons to play their part in the world’s biggest coffee morning.
Catering and Foundation Studies students hosted Macmillan Coffee Mornings and invited peers and Bury College staff to attend and help raise essential funds to support the charities biggest fundraising event.
Level 1 Catering students prepared a selection of delicious cakes, decorated the college restaurant and served tea and coffee. The event took a lot of hard work and organising with the students working closely with chef. The student’s desserts were also being sold in the Millgate to raise further funds for the charity.
Catering student Verity Kay, a former Bury Church of England High School pupil, said, “I have really enjoyed today it was great to serve different people of the college and work closely with the chef.”
In addition to the fundraising that took place on campus, Bury College also played their part in fundraising in the community. Catering students baked and supplied cakes to Ramsbottom business Bang & Olufsen who sold cakes to their customers.
Paul Braithwaite, one of the Directors of the company said, “The Catering students did an excellent job and were really professional. The whole fundraising event was a huge success.”
Foundation Studies students studying the Life Challenge, Work Wise and Life Wise courses baked scones, cupcakes, tea loafs, lemon buns and chocolate buns. Students invited their parents to come along and join in the event which was a fantastic opportunity for all students to practise their customer skills and communication skills.
Congratulations to all students involved who fundraised over £200.
