Doncaster College has welcomed a new eatery experience
to its Hub campus with the opening of the Hub
The Diner, located in the College’s Hub campus, and opened just
before Easter will provide nutritional snacks for the thousands of
students and staff attending Doncaster College. It will be open
daily from 11am to 2pm and serve healthy and affordable food,
ranging from £1.00 to £2.99.
The Diner is run by the Vol.Success Volunteers and life-skills
students from Doncaster College. The students participating in
running the diner will also be working towards a range of
qualifications such as peer mentoring, personal and social
development and food hygiene/ health and safety.
With unemployment in young people being at an all time high, the
diner project will give young people attending the College the
chance to be involved and learn skills which will increase their
chances of gaining employment in the future.
Volunteer Co-ordinator, Jo Holt, said, "The volunteers will be
supporting the Life Skills students to develop their customer
services skills while working on the Hub Diner.
"The project is very much a young person led project and all the
volunteers have been involved from the on-set and will be
responsible for the daily running of the project."
