Watford College raise funds for the Fellowship
Students from West Herts College in Watford presented a sumptuous meal at a Charity Dinner on 31 March, in aid of the British Polio Fellowship (BPF).
This annual event was planning, organised and run by final year students studying for a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Hospitality and Event Management. All the food was cooked, served and cleared by the students and the chef accommodated special dietary requirements, such as vegetarian, gluten and dairy free options.
The restaurant, which is based in the college, offered a three-course meal to its thirty-six diners, at £23 a head and included a raffle with prizes from bottles of wine to a fluffy Easter chick. The proceeds of the raffle and a portion of the cost of the meal will be donated to the Fellowship.
“The Fellowship is incredibly grateful to West Herts College for giving us a chance to be involved with this event and for raising funds for support polio survivors. The students came up trumps this year and it was a wonderful evening.”
Eight members of the Fellowship’s Watford Group attended the dinner, along with a member from Lincolnshire and Kripen Dhrona and Carol Levin from Central Office. Everyone dressed in bright colours to celebrate the international theme of the dinner.
