STU­DENTS from Tame­side Col­lege’s hospitality and cater­ing de­part­ment opened for busi­ness on Ash­ton mar­ket square in the lead up to Re­mem­brance Sun­day to raise money for the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion (RBL).

For a small do­na­tion, mem­bers of the pub­lic and lo­cal vet­er­ans could en­joy a three course meal in­clud­ing but­ter­nut soup, roast chicken and spot­ted dick.

Kevin Tay­lor, edi­tor of AboutTame­side mag­a­zine, and John Holden, restau­rant man­ager at Tame­side Col­lege, or­gan­ised the event to give stu­dents ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing with the pub­lic and to pro­mote the RBL cause.

John said: “This year we wanted to do some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent for the poppy ap­peal and the RBL.

“It was great to see peo­ple en­joy the food and do­nate to a great cause.

“The stu­dents did a re­ally good job work­ing in the kitchen and front of house and I’d like to say thank you to them for do­ing this for those who need it most.”

Lau­ren Mole, level one ● Tame­side Col­lege stu­dents out­side their pop-up stall with a vet­eran from Ash­ton Royal Bri­tish Le­gion in­tro­duc­tion to cook­ery stu­dent, said: “It was nice to be asked to work on the meal. I’m proud of my­self for do­ing it and also proud of the col­lege for or­gan­is­ing the event.

“It’s a good feel­ing to know your work will ben­e­fit some­one else.”

The RBL is one of the largest char­i­ties in the UK and raises money to help those af­fected by ser­vice in the armed forces, whether that’s through help with liv­ing costs, phys­io­ther­apy, hous­ing or coun­selling.
