Catering for County chief
Sixth Form Students at James Calvert Spence College (JCSC) recently rose to the challenge of preparing a fine dining experience for over 100 guests.
The JCSC students were given the unique opportunity of hosting a fundraising event at Blyth Comrades Club towards research into motor neurone disease – which is being backed by Northumberland County Council’s Civic Head.
Over 100 guests, including 15 civic heads from across the region, attended the evening in Blyth, the location chosen in memory of Blyth Spartans player Scott Bell who recently died from the disease.
Marc Waddell, Year 12 student, took up the mantle of Master of Ceremonies, introducing the event, running the bingo, a raffle and even one round of the popular fund-raising game of ‘Heads and Tails’.
“The students have worked very hard on this event,” said JCSC food technology teacher Mrs Gill Lawrie, “They enjoyed being involved from start to finish, talking with the client, planning and preparing the buffet, decorating the hall and hosting on the night.”
The total raised on the night was £1,064.
