Hospitality students aim to cause a stir when they host a coffee morning at D&A College Arbroath Campus next week.

And the 30 students involved are proving themselves no mugs when it comes to organising an event and ensure members of the public can enjoy some refreshment and help boost Macmillan Cancer Support.

Café 56 is the venue for the D&A College Macmillan Coffee morning on Wednesday, September 21 and the students aim to offer a warm welcome between 10 and 11am.

Previous coffee mornings helped swell the charity pot to the tune of £300.

“Projects of this sort are extremely valuable in that they offer real experience,” said hospitality lecturer Lesley Hodgens.

“As well as the marketing, advertising, preparation and actual serving on the day this kind of event helps promote citizenship.”

Café 56 is also open for coffees and breakfast rolls from 9.30-11am each weekday except Thursday and open for lunches on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 12noon-1.30pm. To book contact Kirsty Anderson on (01241) 432612.
