May­ors put heat on cooks in fundraiser

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

MAY­ORS from across the bor­ough in­creased the heat for cater­ing stu­dents when they vis­ited en masse to en­joy a din­ner at the col­lege’s restau­rant.

The stu­dents who work in the kitchen at the Silk Room restau­rant at Mac­cles­field Col­lege cooked for their spe­cial guests on a fundrais­ing night or­gan­ised by Mac­cles­field mayor Alift Hare­wood-Jones.

The restau­rant was fully booked with a com­ple­ment of town may­ors in­clud­ing Knutsford mayor Jan Nicholson, Mayor of Cheshire East Olivia Hunter, Poyn­ton mayor San­dra Hors­man and Mid­dlewich mayor Pam Farrell, plus or­gan­i­sa­tions and friends.

The young chefs im­pressed their din­ers, who raised more than £600 for Just Drop In and Live at Home – char­i­ties the Mac­cles­field mayor is sup­port­ing dur­ing her year.

The guest speaker was for­mer head­teacher Beryl Foot­man, who had a long ca­reer in ed­u­ca­tion in Mac­cles­field and was the in­spi­ra­tion for the restau­rant when she was prin­ci­pal of the col­lege.

Coun Hare­wood-Jones said: “The evening was the bring­ing to­gether of the com­mu­nity, ed­u­ca­tion and town coun­cil.

“I thank the col­lege cater­ing staff for the ex­cel­lent meal and all those who at­tended.”
