As part of their course work, Hospitality GCSE students at Cromer Academy had to research how to host events, plan and then run them - taking into account food costs and expenses.

However, they served up a treat by hosting two events to raise money for the local charities.

The first event was an American themed barbecue which saw students offering a range of handmade treats with various burgers and salads on offer.

Tickets were sold for £5, raising £70 for the Cromer Foodbank.
