Sean Walker, Catering Tutor at the Clervaux Café said “We had a great night, we raised close to £400 in takings and the learners pizza’s and desserts were fantastic.”

James Hunter, RTR delivery officer, added: “We are proud to support local businesses and community groups to run these kinds of events. The learners at the café gain a lot from having the services available and they all really enjoy doing what they do.”
