Seven jobs, $150 raised for Ronald McDonald House, industry and business collaboration and some great tasting coffee resulted from a Pre-Employment Accredited Hospitality course organised by Sarina Russo Job Access Hervey Bay, East Coast TAFE and local employers.
Throughout the 10 day course job seekers completed theory and practical work including work experience at the Hervey Bay Hotel.
On the last day of their course, thirteen of them turned up at 6.30am to set up for a Charity Coffee Day and show off their newly learned skills.
McDonald's supplied The Coffee Van and The Village Caters provided the marquee and homemade cookies
Local employers Kingfisher Bay Resort, Eurong Village, Hervey Bay Boat Club, McDonalds and Hervey Bay Hotel were so impressed they hired seven of our job seekers.
