Local Indian restaurant Spice Fusion has offered its services to MidKent College’s Hospitality and Catering students to celebrate some incredible charity work at a special celebration evening.

Chefs from the Indian chain, who have restaurants in Barming, Sittingbourne and Parkwood, teamed up with the students, working all day to produce some Indian dishes for guests to enjoy at the India presentation evening, which followed the journeys of six students who have undertaken voluntary work in some of the poorest parts of the country.

Spice Fusion are well known for their authentic dishes, and were more than happy to work with the College to grow the skills of the young people here, and provide vital work experience to those on the course. They cooked up three dishes, and served the tables as the students shared their experiences of fundraising, voluntary work and cultural experiences gained on their two week trip.

It’s great when learners are given the opportunity to work with professionals and MidKent College is proud to work with local businesses to progress their students. Community relationships are vital to make sure the future workforce are totally prepared when they begin their careers, and Spice Fusion have most definitely given a great insight into the catering industry.

Finally, our sincere thanks go to Kieran Haque, owner of Spice Fusion, for allowing his chefs to give their time and expertise in helping the students and for donating the costs of the meal towards the ABLE charity. This raised a grand total of £1000 which will enhance the educational resources for the slum children of Faridabad.
