Wargrave House School and College students recently held the ‘Lakeside Tea Party’ in the college to help raise funds for their end of year celebration event and what a fantastic morning it was!
The college students set up the event and served refreshments to all the guests and also held a raffle with some fantastic prizes including afternoon tea at the Mercure Hotel, Haydock, a voucher from Wilkinson’s and a voucher for the Odeon cinema.
Amongst the guests were the Councillor Janet Johnson, the Mayor of St Helens, community partners as well as parents’, carers and friends of Wargrave House.
Tara Thomas, teaching support assistant at Wargrave, said: “The tea party raised a magnificent total of £375.24 and we would like to thank everyone who joined us.
“The college end of year celebration event will take place at the Mercure Hotel in Haydock on Wednesday 22 July 2020 and is part of the students learning as they work towards open award level one in event planning and hospitality.
“The Post 16 provision is keen to develop links with the local and wider community and the support from work experience placements has been priceless. In particular for this event, the outstanding commitment from Mercure Hotel has been invaluable as they are offering their hospitality so the students can enjoy their end of year celebration.
“We are looking for more employers to work with us and engage with our students to further support inclusion and neuro diversity within the workforce, so please contact Karen Tarbuck on 01925 224899 if you can help”.
