An ongoing relationship between GYC and the Leukaemia Foundation has taken a new step this year.
GYC Hospitality teacher Mr Stephen Lunn and some of his students have conducted cooking classes in support of people living with blood cancer.
The classes – one held in June and the other in November – helped sufferers and their families to understand the nutritional needs of people with cancer and the type of food and cooking that would best support their health. Part of the message was that simple, home-prepared food could be delicious.
Working with the Leukaemia Foundation’s Ms Jane Anderson, and nutritionist Mrs Fiona Rowell, Mr Lunn found suitable recipes and then, assisted by the students, he gave cooking demonstrations on how the food could be well prepared. Of course, the delicious and nutritious food was also eaten.
It is expected that the classes will continue in 2018, with the an expansion to include the attendees cooking as well.
