More than twenty College students, studying Business Administration Level 3 were selling cakes for Children in Need at the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East Londonâ€™s Enfield Centre on Thursday (15 November).
Furry eared and brightly dressed, the young women, armed with trays of sponges, gateaux and sweet pies donated by Tesco, Krispy Kremes and local businesses Yasir Halim and Aroma sold their delicious pastries from the College’s Learner Hub building and also took the cake sale on tour around the Centre.
Spokesperson, Precious Hannah, explained: “We held the cake sale to raise money for charity but also because it is part of our course. We learnt about team skills as well as developing entrepreneurial flair, which are essential for Business Admin. We had to source the cakes, make sure we chose the ones that would sell quickly and get the pricing right. We’ve smashed our conservative target of £200 and raised a whopping £436.11!”
Fellow learner, Chantelle Brown, added: “We learnt from the mistakes learners made last year and made sure that we didn’t run out of paper plates, serviettes and cakes so that we could keep on selling well presented stock.”
Head of School, Darren Leftwich, said: “Linking in to topical issues such as Children in Need makes learning fun and more relevant. I’m really pleased with what our learners have done today both in terms of their College work and fundraising.”
Many of the learners pictured plan to go to university to study subjects, such as, Events Management, Accounting and Human Resources. Others plan to go directly into employment.
