Seven students from Amersham College have held a Christmas fair which raised more than £650 for charity in just two hours.
The students, who have varying educational needs, chose Mission EmployAble as their cause for the fair, which took place on Wednesday, December 1.
With help from their lecturer, Mrs Karen Cookson, the students made iced cupcakes, brownies and flex-free bottle lamps to sell at the fair.
They served hot and cold drinks to customers, with one student taking requests for tunes on the piano and another running the chocolate tomobola. Other students sold raffle tickets.
One stall sold Mission EmployAble Keep Cups (thermal mugs) and Christmas cards in two styles, one designed by a Mission EmployAble intern; and another designed by Amersham resident, artist Lizzy Duncan.
Mrs Cookson said: “It was a wonderful event, very well attended, with a lovely atmosphere.
“The students impressed everyone with their creative and entrepreneurial skills and are thrilled with the amazing sum they raised for such a worthy cause,”
Mission Employable is a new Chorleywood-based charity that trains young adults with learning disabilities from Bucks and Herts via its supported internship programme, in partnership with the Bucks College Group.
