Hats off to Rotherham College students for fundraising tea party

COLLEGE students made sure not to be late for a very important date when they put the kettle on for a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

The Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr Eve Rose Keenan, was the guest of honour at the event at the Town Hall, which was organised to mark the end of her year in office next week.

Fashion and media make-up students from Rotherham College have worked together to design costumes, while performing arts students were on hand to meet and greet guests in character as the stars of Alice in Wonderland.

The college’s art and design students made props and scenery, while music played for the guests throughout the evening and catering students dreamed up a menu and served the food and their horticulture counterparts tidied up the Town Hall gardens.

Business, graphic design and media and photography students all played a part in organising and promoting the event,

Julia Arechiga, study programme curriculum director at Rotherham College, said: “This has been a great event for the students to get involved in and have the opportunity to be able to contribute to raising the profile of the creative arts and talent that we have in Rotherham. 

“They have all pulled together to contribute in supporting and putting together this prestigious event and I’m extremely proud of them.”
