The Coffee Crew
Mon, 02 November 2009
The students in Dovestones organised a coffee morning last week to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Research. They also wanted to make the most of this opportunity, as the Dovestones Café will now be open on Friday mornings to staff, students and external visitors by arrangement.
The students sold filtered coffee, tea, juice, toast and crumpets to the customers, who were all very pleased with the service. This included the Principal, Peter Ryder, who had coffee and toast and said “The hot chocolate with all the trimmings looked great”.
The students also held a raffle with fabulous prizes, such as, a huge British bulldog, cosmetics, a designer handbag and lots of runner up prizes. In total the students raised a fantastic £74.90 for Macmillan Cancer Research, so a big ‘thank you’ to all who turned up and bought tickets.
The coffee morning proved to be a good practice session for the future Dovestones Café and highlighted the improvements the students could make to ensure smooth running of their service for the future.
