STUDENTS from Heart of Worcestershire (How) College recently helped raise cash for a local singing and performance charity.

The college's Archers Restaurant hosted an Eastern themed evening to raise money for Redditch-based Indigo Arts, which runs performances and workshops in all areas of performing arts disciplines.

With over more than 100 children, young people and adults registered in regular provision, the charity encourages the development of creativity and the arts within community settings and education.

The fundraising event was organised by HoW College’s Level 2 Hospitality and Catering students, who created a mouth-watering menu, arranged a prize packed tombola as well as helped to prepare and serve food to customers on the night.

As well as delicious food, guests were also treated to a performance from Indigo Arts choir.

Lecturer Elaine Wroblewska said it was a fantastic night.

“The students worked really hard to put the evening together, from decorating the restaurant, arranging the entertainment to serving guests on the evening," she said.
