A great team effort by Travel & Tourism students led to a successful World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in the College’s Ashfields restaurant, with plenty of coffee and cake, the event raised more than £400 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
In addition to tempting refreshments, made and served by first year Extended Diploma Travel & Tourism students, there was a bumper raffle to raise extra cash for the charity.
Rachel Danks, formerly of York High School, enjoyed working with fellow students to make the event happen, she said: “It’s been fun working on every aspect of this, from baking cakes to finding raffle prizes and then serving customers on the day. Our aim was to raise as much money as possible for Macmillan Cancer Support, and at the same time, being new to the College and the course, we used the experience as a team bonding exercise - it was a good way to get to know our classmates..”
Travel and Tourism tutor Mark Rushworth is proud of the way the students have worked together: “They’ve done a great job raising awareness of The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and making it a sociable occasion for everyone. We are grateful to all who attended and for supporting such an invaluable cause.”
