Coffee-drinking college students raise cancer charity cash
Students from East Berkshire College organised a special coffee morning to help raise money for charity.
As part of their community project, 25 students from the Personal Options programme, sold a variety of cakes, hot drinks, plants, books, homemade felt hearts, mugs and raffle tickets to students and staff at the Langley campus in Station Road.
Overall they raised £155 for Breast Cancer Care.
Lecturer Jenny Cobble said: “The event was a great success, thanks to the hard work and effort of the students.
“As well as raising money for a worthwhile cause, the event also helped the students develop their ability to work as a team and communicate effectively.
“Each year the programme aims to prepare students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities for life and work, by developing the skills and confidence they need to succeed.”
The event was part of a business enterprise scheme developed by the college to help students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities learn valuable life skills which can be used in the workplace.
The Personal Options programme is an entry-level course for people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.
