Three cheers for the Rex Bar and Restaurant in Ventnor who this morning donated a whopping £850 to St Catherine’s in Ventnor.
Staff at the restaurant have been squirreling away their tips over the last year and saving them for this very special charity.
The cheque was presented to the young people this morning the during the school’s end-of-term assembly.
The generous donation is earmarked for St Catherine’s vocational training programme, The Worx.
The Worx works with young people from St Catherine’s, from special needs units within mainstream schools on the Island and from other voluntary organisations and provides a range of vocational training modules that look to bridge the gap between school and college, further training or employment.
Kim Fry, Community Fundraiser, explained “It is fantastic of Jo and Abdul at the Rex to support our children and young people in this way. The Rex is a great favourite with our staff and families. We cannot thank them enough for their generosity.”
