ESOL learners at Lewisham College organised a Foodie Fundraiser event to raise funds for the Ruth Hayman Trust which helps adults who have come to settle in the UK, and whose first language is not English access education.

As part of the initiative, the learners worked together to plan, organise, and carry out the fundraising event, and developed communication, customer service and business skills, raising £636 to support the charity’s work.

Asfa Sohail, Principal at Lewisham College, said: “I’m very proud to see our ESOL learners taking the initiative to organise a fundraiser to support a local charity while applying the knowledge and skills gained in their course.”

Ozana, ESOL learner, said: “I enjoyed participating in the Foodie Fundraiser event and felt happy to help other ESOL students. I was able to use my communication skills and had a good experience learning how to be supportive and share goodwill with others.”
