Serv­ing up a huge char­ity cash boost

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

A fundrais­ing ef­fort by stu­dents at New Col­lege La­nark­shire went down a treat, rais­ing £ 1000 for a can­cer char­ity.

Stu­dents on hos­pi­tal­ity and pro­fes­sional cook­ery cour­ses at the Mother­well cam­pus raised the fan­tas­tic amount for Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port.

Staff, stu­dents and mem­bers of the pub­lic were in­vited to en­joy cof­fee morn­ings, lunches and bake-offs in train­ing res­tau­rant, ML One.

The char­ity bake-off, with de­li­cious treats in­clud­ing short­bread, cof­fee cake and cheese­cake all on show were judged by chef lec­tur­ers, Fiona Mof­fat and Jim Mullen.

Lorna Hart, or­gan­iser of the fundrais­ers and lec­turer in ser­vice in­dus­tries, said: “We are de­lighted with the amount raised for Macmil­lan. It al­lowed our stu­dents to brush up on their hos­pi­tal­ity and cook­ery skills in front of the pub­lic ahead of its of­fi­cial open­ing date.

“I’d like to thank every­one who worked hard to make the event a suc­cess, all the stu­dents and staff who took part in the bake-offs and all those who do­nated so gen­er­ously.”

The stu­dents pre­sented the cheque to An­gela McCor­mack, area fundrais­ing man­ager for Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port.

She said: “Thank you so much to the staff and stu­dents at New Col­lege La­nark­shire for supporting the World’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing and for rais­ing the fan­tas­tic sum of £1000.

“At Macmil­lan we know can­cer can af­fect ev­ery­thing. Your body, your re­la­tion­ships, your money, ev­ery­thing. But we are here to help peo­ple live life, no mat­ter what. We give them the sup­port they need to hold on to who they are and what’s im­por­tant.

“But we can’t do it with­out the sup­port of our fan­tas­tic fundrais­ers and vol­un­teers.

“Life with can­cer is still life – let’s help peo­ple live it.”

The ML One train­ing res­tau­rant in the Mother­well Cam­pus is open to the pub­lic from 12–1.30pm Mon­day to Thurs­day.
