Tourism stu­dents whisk guests to Hol­ly­wood for fundraiser

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Col­lege’s travel and tourism stu­dents held a glam­orous Hol­ly­wood themed evening to raise money for an ed­u­ca­tional trip to Spain.

A buf­fet style menu was cre­ated with the help of the col­lege’s ca­ter­ing stu­dents to in­clude some­thing for ev­ery­one.

Stu­dents also cre­ated dec­o­ra­tions for the col­lege’s Silk Room restau­rant and bought Hol­ly­wood themed items to dress the ta­bles.

A Tin­sel­town themed quiz tested par­tic­i­pants’ star knowl­edge and there was also a raf­fle.

The mar­ket­ing for the event, as well as de­sign­ing posters and leaflets, was done by the stu­dents, who also cre­ated the tick­ets and menus for the evening.

Travel and tourism tu­tor Nwyla Tat­ton said: “The stu­dents made sure ev­ery­one had a lovely time and the ca­ter­ing stu­dents also served the buf­fet food and drinks.

“They all did us proud and par­ents com­mented on how well or­gan­ised and how lovely the food and the evening was.

“The event also gave them an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to see what a ca­reer in event man­age­ment would be like.”
