Students present £1,000 to ellenor Hospice to the Gallery Restaurant

A North Kent based charity received an extra special Christmas present as local students raised £1,000 to support its efforts.

North Kent College Culinary Academy students invited ellenor Hospice to the Gallery Restaurant, at the College’s Gravesend campus just before Christmas, for a festive afternoon tea and to hand over the £1,000 donation.

The money was raised when the students held a charity night in aid of the Hospice, which featured a two-course menu prepared by students, live music, a pop-up bar and shop and lots more.

“This was a wonderful event organised by staff and students, showcasing their skills and contributing to a very worthy and local cause,” said Nikki Franks, Assistant Principal – Construction and Engineering at North Kent College.

North Kent College’s Culinary Academy is made up of the College’s hospitality and catering students, with several courses on offer at its Tonbridge and Gravesend campuses. Students benefit from industry standard kitchens and service areas, The Gallery and The View restaurants which are open to the public and highly equipped classrooms.
