Hot and cold lunch options were offered to college staff, students and members of the public in return for a small donation of the individual’s choice. The event raised £200 and has been split equally between Thurso’s Community Development Trust and German Shepherd Rescue Scotland. Both charities were chosen by all the students and staff involved.

Professional Cookery Lecturer Shirley Duffy is very pleased with the response from the public “We are delighted so many people made generous contributions for the lunches they received and we were able to give donations to two very worthy charities.”

Sharon Dismore from the Thurso Community Development Trust said “We are so grateful to the college, Shirley and her students for this generous donation to the community gardens. We have been lucky enough to work for three consecutive years with the students at the college and we are so delighted that they chose the community gardens and our project as one of the recipients of their donation.“
