After yesterday's Christmas Fayre, students and staff at the Nisai Learning Hub gathered all the leftover food and donated it to a homeless shelter and charity in Nottingham. Carrying their biscuits, a support worker from Emmanuel House, greeted them and gratefully accepted their donations. The students' lightened up the days of those at the shelter with their generosity and learnt a valuable lesson in humanity.
Our students and staff had a fun packed Thursday afternoon in our Nottingham Hub where cakes, homemade reefs, sweets, treats and the best raffle in Nottinghamshire were open to the public for our annual Christmas Fayre!
Parents, staff and students all contributed and the atmosphere was buzzing with festive cheer. The fayre successfully raised £100 which will help towards future activities for our students.
All the leftover food from the fayre will be donated to the homeless around Nottingham City centre by Nisai staff and students. This is a great way to utilise the excess food and helps spread Christmas cheer during the festive season, which can be hard for certain individuals.
Well done guys!
When Prince Harry and his fiancé Meghan Markle made their first official visit to Nottingham, our Hub students and team were there to greet them. Bracing the cold, a few of our lucky students got to speak to the royal visitors, appear on TV and chat with the Mayor of Nottingham who took a group picture with them - definitely a morning to remember!
