Students Help With Community Christmas Meal

Students Help With Community Christmas Meal

Last week our students joined forces with The Friday Friends Club charity and the Bevy Community Pub to give over 50 local elderly people a very special festive meal.

The Friday Friends Club provides a weekly outing and a meal for lonely and elderly people in the city.  The BACA student voice Junior Leadership Team are fundraising for ‘Friday Friends to help vulnerable, elderly people in our area get transported to social events so that they aren’t always home alone.  This includes supporting their campaign for a new minibus to help with travel.

During the Christmas lunch, hosted at the Bevy, our BACA Voices Choir sang Carols and entertained the diners and our students also helped with serving the guests.

On Wednesday 23 January at 7.00pm the BACA Parents Forum will be holding a fundraising quiz night to raising money for Friday Friends.
