Students brew up for World’s Biggest Coffee Morning
Monday, 30 September 2013
Students at Seevic College brewed up a storm as they raised a total of £167.78 for MacMillan Cancer Support by participating in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
Cakes were baked, cuppas brewed and biscuits dunked on Friday 27 September as students participated in the UK-wide fundraising event.
The students, who are aged between 16-19 and studying courses in Early Years, Health & Social Care and Essential Skills, operated two coffee and cake stalls based in the College’s Restaurant and West Building.
Early Years and Health & Social Care students supported Essential Skills students with baking cakes in a new purpose-built kitchen facility at the College.
And the event proved a huge success, with staff, students and visitors to the College flocking to the two busy stalls.
Kay Davis, Curriculum Area Leader for Learners with Learning Difficulties and/or Disabilities said: “Early Years and Health & Social Care students excellently supported our Essential Skills students, helping them to develop confidence in communicating with others. I was very proud to observe these two groups together supporting one another. In fact, it was an absolute pleasure.”
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event. In 2012 115,000 people signed up, raising a record £15million.
Seevic College’s main Campus is based in Runnymede Chase, Benfleet. The College offers the widest range of A-Levels locally, in addition to Vocational Qualifications, Apprenticeships and Higher Education courses.
The Essential Skills programme at the College is designed for young people aged between 16 and 18, and focuses on developing skills for independent living.
Seevic College’s first Open Evening of the year takes place on Tuesday 8 October from 5.30pm to 8pm.
