CONEL ESOL students raised approximately £200 for Marie Curie Cancer Care by holding an English Tea Party at the Enfield Centre, on Thursday 30 June.
The tea party brought together staff and students and there was a lot to choose and buy, from delicious tea and coffee to scrumptious cakes and biscuits. ESOL students Nuriye and Nusrat said: “We are so happy to take part in such a valuable event to support a charity. It was something totally different from other ordinary food sale fundraising events and we really enjoyed it.”
Another ESOL Entry level 3 student, Malgorzata Krzysztofik, added: “We should do more charity events like this to support people in need. I think this is a great idea and we would like to fundraise to support a charity as a class too. Hopefully next year!”
All proceeds from the event went to Marie Curie, as every cup of tea and slice of cake will help nurse someone with a terminal illness in the local community. Marie Curie Cancer Care provides care and support for people living with any terminal illness, and their families.
The delicious assortments of cakes were baked by students from the ESOL Entry 3 class and their teacher Oya Karabetca. Oya states: “I think it is vital to encourage and involve our learners in such meaningful activities. It gives them the opportunity to make a difference in other people’s lives and enhances their team building skills as well as language skills.”
