STUDENTS from Derwen College's Penley site have been using their skills to lend a hand to the Wrexham Rotary Club.

The students, based at the Ashdale House satellite site, have been taking advantage of their catering and housekeeping skills to prepare meals within the kitchen at the site as part of a Rotary Club project.

The Just50 project brings together volunteers to deliver and serve hot meals to homeless people in the Wrexham area. Food provided by Rotary is delivered to the Derwen College satellite site and then the cooked meals are collected and distributed.

“This is an excellent opportunity for our students to put their catering and housekeeping skills into practice assisting this local organisation in the community,” said Sian Roberts, satellite coordinator at Derwen College.

The Ashdale House satellite provides opportunities for students with learning difficulties and disabilities to work in a small group to develop and improve experience and confidence.

Students are aged between 16 and 25-years-old and curriculum pathways include land-based, creative art, and catering and housekeeping.
