So after 23 years I am retiring from The Hayling College where I have enjoyed working on reception . Anyone who knows me accepts that part of my Welsh upbringing means that ‘no one goes hungry on my shift ‘ !
There are hundreds of reasons why a student may not have had breakfast or has no lunch money and the college tries to be supportive .
Free school lunch students are usually ok it’s the ones who maybe the parents have literally run out of money until the end of the week, or have forgotten again to give them lunch or when you call home there’s no answer , these are the students I like to support . No questions asked just give them a couple of pound for lunch or a pre packed snack . If it’s ongoing then obviously it’s reported and dealt with as best as possible.
So I would like to leave a small legacy so this can carry on after I’ve retired .
If anyone would like to contribute as a gesture of wishing me well in my retirement I would be very grateful , I’d really appreciate a donation rather than buying a card .
Thank you very much
