Ludlow College was the venue for a celebration of local community and volunteering opportunities on Friday, 31st March 2017. The event was a first for the College and proved to be a great success both with students, exhibitors and the Ludlow community.
More than 30 exhibitors took part, with representation from environmental, wildlife and sustainability groups, the town council, political reform groups, the Ludlow Fringe Festival, Riding for the Disabled, Fairtrade and many, many more.
Ludlow College students were very much involved, with English Literature students helping out on the Castle Bookshop stand and sports students giving their support on the disability sports coaching stand. Student ambassadors also gave assistance throughout the event and ensured that all ran smoothly.
The event was particularly successful in encouraging interaction between different age groups and an opportunity for community groups to network and build support. Refreshments were provided throughout and visitors were also able to sample the delights of the Vegan food stall which proved to be particularly popular.
Hospitality and Catering student, Sabrina Millman commented, “Everyone was very informative and as a catering student it was great to learn about different ingredients on the Vegan food stall. I didn’t realise there was so much going on in Ludlow!”
