Cater­ing stu­dents whip up tasty profit for char­ity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News Brief -

STU­DENTS at Peter­bor­ough Re­gional Col­lege have been cook­ing up some culi­nary de­lights in aid of char­ity.

The col­lege’s Parcs Res­tau­rant kitchens hot­ted up as hos­pi­tal­ity and cater­ing stu­dents joined Kevin Wood, head chef at the Or­ton Hall Ho­tel, and Richard Barry, from Mil­ton Golf Club, to pro­duce a va­ri­ety of de­li­cious dishes for mem­bers of the pub­lic.

The event was the idea of the cater­ing stu­dents, who de­cided they wanted to raise cash for good causes.

They chose two char­i­ties, Help for He­roes and Sue Ry­der Care, to ben­e­fit from the event.

A grand to­tal of £802.34 was do­nated from the night, held last month.

Each course on the stu­dents’ menu had been spon­sored by lo­cal em­ploy­ers.

The spon­sors in­cluded Hud­sons Fruit and Veg, R&P Meats, Chut­ney Jack, Town and County, Miko, Peter­bor­ough Dairies and Whit­tle­sey Cater­ing Hire.

Sarah Thorpe, cur­ricu­lum team man­ager for the cater­ing stu­dents, said the event had been a big suc- cess.

She said: “The stu­dents did a fan­tas­tic job and were very pro­fes­sional.

“We would also like to thank Kevin Wood, and Richard Barry, from Mil­ton Golf Club, for all of their hard work and mak­ing this night a great suc­cess.

“The stu­dents thor­oughly en­joyed work­ing with them.”
