Dough kneaded for a good cause

D&A College’s hospitality and catering students are hoping to roll in the dough for charity as they prepare for the Christmas Fayre at the Arbroath Campus.

Mince pies and shortbread will be served at the event on Wednesday, December 7.

Running from 10am-2.30pm, this student-centred event is open to everyone, with the Isla building in Keptie Road throwing its doors open to the public.

As well as a vast array of student crafts on sale there are a number of fun raffles and tombola-style, prizewinning competitions such as ‘Guess the Reindeer’s Birthday.”

With food hampers, sweetie bags and marshmallow snowmen on offer there is something for everyone on two legs and even delights for four-legged friends – with dog biscuits and cat treats available.

“Students from a broad raft of courses are taking part in the Fayre with produce and themes they have employed in the enterprise units of their courses,” explained Tatiana Zorina, learner engagement officer.

“They will be supporting a range of charities with the proceeds from their sales.”

Meanwhile the Student Crisis Fund should receive a boost from the rental revenue accrued from stall-holders keen to take part in the Fayre.

Christmas shopping should be made easy with a 20 external sellers offering a variety of gifts and festive paraphernalia including: homemade chocolates, Christmas wreaths, handbags, wooden gifts, soaps and bath-bombs, candles, photo frames and jewellery, scarfs, hair bands and hair clips.

“Unfortunately, Santa Claus will not be there as he is very busy on that day, but children can indulge in face-painting and have glitter tattoos,” said Tatiana.
