We’re delighted to reveal four Grimsby Institute Hospitality learners have picked up five awards at one of the UK’s largest and most prestigious chef competitions.
Well done to our UCG Student Senate, who have handed over a festive food donation to two local organisations.
Representing the Senate, Ashley Corrigan presented We Are One Foundation and Grimsby and Cleethorpes Area Doorstep with the generous haul, donated by staff and students at the Grimsby Institute and University Centre Grimsby.
We Are One, operated by Dave and Jean Wells, serves up to 200 meals each week for vulnerable adults at St Andrew’s Church in Grimsby.
“We’re there every Saturday from 5, for anyone who feels they need it,” said the couple, who are also starting a new meal service for families on Fridays.
“Donations like these are invaluable, because we don’t receive any funding so wouldn’t be able to do anything without them.”
Doorstep property services manager Sarah Wydell added: “We’re very grateful to Ashley and the Institute for collecting this food.
“We do food parcels for 16-25 year olds, so this donation will help stock the larder up in time for Christmas.”
Four Music learners are hitting all the right notes as their band goes from strength to strength – and they credit the course with “changing their lives”.
