Students host a festive Christmas Charity fayre

Students at Stoke-on-Trent College hosted a festive Christmas Fayre in the Atrium Restaurant, open to fellow students and staff at Cauldon campus.

Taking place from December 7 until December 9, the event was a great success; raising £245 for Douglas Macmillan Hospice.

Hospitality students prepared a Christmas market menu of nachos, hotdogs, burgers and mulled fruit juice.

Level 3 BTEC Business students organised the Fayre as part of their ‘Managing a Business Event’ unit. The NCFE Level 2 Business learners provided the customer service – including serving the food – as part of their Practical Customer Service unit. Business learners also made a vast assortment of Christmas crafts on sale.

Crafts included Christmas cards, Christmas trees, angels and gnomes – all homemade.

They also ran a raffle and some competitions such as ‘guess the number of sweets in the jar’ and ‘guess the name of the teddy’.

All the Business learners who took part were able to achieve the relevant assessment criteria, many to a Distinction level. Staff were really impressed with the learners, commenting on how fantastic the organisation, presentation and customer service was.

Douglas Macmillan Hospice is a well-established cancer research charity, an organisation the College has fundraised for many times in the past.

“My experience on organising the event and being able to witness the results of the event was not only beneficial for my assessment but also to my future.

“Being able to work alongside other students as a team over 6 weeks to achieve the best we can in holding a successful event and later being able to witness the event take place, was very rewarding.”

Ujaala Hussain, Business student
