Glion London raises £840 for Macmillan Cancer Support
Wake up and smell the coffee! On September 27 2013, students and staff from Glion London hosted a coffee morning in support of Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Largest Coffe Morning.
The event took place at the Glion London Campus, situated at Whitelands Campus at the University of Roehampton in southwest London. Students at Glion London were responsible for making cakes and pastries for the event, which included delicacies from around the world representing the international student body at Glion London. Recipes included Yoghurt cake from Greece, Spanish orange cake, Tiramisu, Swedish Blueberry Cake and a British Tray Bake.
The Hospitality Management students organized the event, which was executed seamlessly, giving the students the opportunity to put their food and beverage management, hosting and event management skills into practice. Students were accompanied by staff from Glion London and from the visiting Food and Beverage Manager from Glion Switzerland. Students boosted donations by organising a raffle with prizes.
These included: an overnight stay at K West Hotel & Spa, a three course meal for 2 people including a bottle of wine at HIX Mayfair and a three course meal at Hunter 486 restaurant of The Arch Hotel.
There was also a ‘best cake’ prize of an Afternoon Tea at The Petersham, Richmond, which was judged by students with the winning cake being an Italian Chocolate Cake.
The event was a success and enjoyed by all who participated and we look forward to taking part again next year.
They say that everyone around the globe knows someone who has been affected by cancer. It is right that Glion London, with its global perspective on hospitality education, should take part in this engaging and worthwhile event.
