What a souper effort from fundraising students

This week saw the cameras rolling and the pans bubbling in a joint fundraising initiative at West Nottinghamshire College – aimed at helping the homeless.

  • Catering students Kaden Pearson and Brandon Lawrence with film and tv students Mason Bartle and Lisle Briggs
  • There was an array of vegetables to create a happy soup

Film and television production students joined forces with catering and hospitality students to serve up soup to staff and fellow learners through the national Big Broth campaign on Tuesday (23 October).

The Big Broth event is organised by homelessness charity CentrePoint and saw the college raise over £80.

The idea for the fundraiser was the brainchild of students who are currently studying on the NQC Level 2 Creative Media Production (Film and Television) course. They had recently researched information about the homelessness charity and the Big Broth event, which is being held nationally on 2 November.

Catering and hospitality diploma students cooked-up three flavours of soup for the event – mushroom, vegetable, and carrot and coriander. Customers were also invited to choose from a selection of decorative vegetables to create a smiley face-style topping on their soups, which were served at £1.50 per bowl.

The media students recorded guests’ perception on homelessness in the area and asked for their feedback on which flavour soup they had eaten in the college’s Relish restaurant.

Media tutor Jon Hall Jon said: “The charity really struck a chord with the students, as some of them have friends who are, or who have been, homeless.

“Although the event is celebrated nationally on 2 November, we wanted to bring this forward to before the half-term break and it’s been really well attended.

“The event gave them a great opportunity to practice their interview skills on film, as well as raising money for a worthwhile cause.”
