All Hallows – Cre8 Works construction of outbuilding and market stalls for business enterprise
Cre8 Works recently worked with All Hallows to design and construct a wooden outbuilding and market stalls as part of a project run by their business and enterprise students. The building and the stalls will be used by students to sell handcrafted products made by the students during break times.
Young adults working for Cre8 Works helped to design the building and it was constructed over the summer. We really enjoyed being involved with the project and we think the end result is fantastic!
The recent All Hallows Christmas fair, which utilised the new building and stalls, was a massive success. You can read the report below...
The All Hallows Christmas Fair proved to be a huge success in the last week of The Michaelmas Term with large crowds turning out each break and lunch time for 3 days in a row.
In the true spirit of The College's core value of 'co-operation', Y13 Sociology students joined forces with BTEC Business students, KS3 Enterprise students and teachers to put on a fantastic show of design and entrepreneurial talent in a tremendous offer of seasonal products.
Hot chocolate was served from the serving hatches of the new outbuilding and handcrafted Christmas products were sold from the new stalls. These included Christmas tree decorations, seasonally decorated cakes and even creatively packaged Christmas presents for pets.
The new outbuilding and stalls venture was officially launched on Monday, 16 December when Pete Pealing of Peaks and Plains Housing Trust cut a ribbon to declare the new site open. Peaks and Plains provided part of the funding for The Project from their Community Investment Grant with the rest coming from The Charity 'Giving Nation' who are supporting KS3 Enterprise activity in The School and The College. A special mention should also go to Cre8 Works, a social enterprise based in Macclesfield for their design and supply of the outbuilding and to Gavin Kenning Engineering based in Derbyshire for working with the College to ensure the stalls were perfect for a school setting.
Most importantly however was the fun and experience enjoyed by the students of All Hallows all in a good cause. The students collectively contributed to a wonderful Christmas celebration, soaking up the atmosphere created by Christmas lights, Christmas music and a visit from Santa Claus. Jacob Cotterill, a Y13 BTEC Business student has seen The Project through from beginning to end and said "This really sums up what All Hallows is all about. I have learned so much from the whole experience and I am so pleased to have been part of it. I only moved to the area and joined The College in The Sixth Form and I can't believe how much we can achieve in a short space of time." Money raised from The Christmas Fair will go towards The India Clinic Appeal.
