STUDENTS at a Malpas school are organising a charity Christmas fair in aid of The Clwyd Special Riding Centre.
Bishop Heber High School Sixth Form students recently visited the centre to see its facilities and how it operates as a registered charity, run by volunteers.
Students were given a guided tour and are keen to raise as much as possible to support the self-funded centre.
The Charity Winter Warmer will be held at Agden Hall, Malpas, Cheshire, by invitation of Mr and Mrs Benjamin Legget and will run from 7-9.30pm on Tuesday, November 4.
Tickets are £12.50 to include a glass of bubbly and canapés and are available from Bishop Heber Library or the school’s general office on 01948 860571.
The evening will offer stalls offering food, cards, home furnishings, leather goods, jewellery, clothing, plus ideas for Christmas presents.
Students have secured sponsorship from Meadow Vale Foods, based in Malpas, while the Chester-based Italian food company Olio and Farina is providing much of the food for the event.
Students visited Olio and Farina and were able to sample foods suitable for the evening and were given a demonstration by owner, Belinda Diamond, of how to prepare the food.
In the final run up to the event students are busy finalising arrangements. It is part of Year 13’s AGCE Business Studies course and for one unit they are expected to organise and stage an event. Tasks relating to the event have been divided into promotion, food and drink and finance.
Students organising the event are: Jasper Alexander, Lerryn Frain, Jack Giddings, Tom Hale, Jenny Heard, Polly Hancock, Ben Hibbert, Dave Morrey, Natalie Norman, Elle Rozario, Jess Smith, Amie Walker, James Watmough and Rebecca Young.
