College community comes together in show of support for Ukraine

ESOL students at Tower Hamlets campus made posters and messages of support. They discussed the heartbreaking situation and one student, Dyana, from the Ukraine, spoke during the lesson about the terrible situation some of her family are facing. The class also made a video of support to send to Dyana’s family members.

At Ardleigh Green campus, a raffle with donated prizes was held along with a sponsored row and bike ride and students wrote messages of peace for a display board

At Hackney campus, Hospitality and Catering students held a Benefit Night for Ukraine at OKN1 restaurant. The evening was a celebration of Ukrainian culture with traditional music and a three-course menu of authentic Ukrainian cuisine. It was held in support of Ukrainian students Angelina Duschak, 17, and Elvira Grygutsiak, 18, who are both training at OKN1 and study Event Management and City & Guilds Food & Beverage Service Supervision at the Hackney campus.

SEND students on Independence and Life Skills courses at Hackney designed and sold Sunflower Cards to raise money. The students were very shocked and disturbed by news reports and the effect of the conflict on people’s lives and wanted to do something to help families in distress.

They worked in different classes to cooperate with each other and complete the project with everyone contributing in the best way they could.

More fundraising and events planned by the Student Union will be held at New City College in the summer term.
