Cookies, pastries and sponges baked by students at City of Wolverhampton College are selling like hot cakes at a local church.  

Members of Wolverhampton Spiritualist Church, in Waterloo Road, are snapping up the tasty treats after approaching the college for help with stocking its community kitchen.   

Goods made by students studying for bakery qualifications at the college’s Metro One campus are on sale at the church after services on Sundays and Mondays and, since the project launched in September, have netted around £150 per month to boost church funds. 

Stephen Bladen, bakery tutor at the college, said: “Our Academy bakery shop is open to the public every weekday and products that are left over on a Friday are sold to the church.  This is a great way of making sure excess food doesn’t go to waste and supporting a local organisation at the same time.”    

Jean Richards, vice president of the church, whose son, Lewis, is doing a cookery course at the college said: “We are really pleased that the college agreed to help us stock the kitchen and the cakes have proved really popular with our members – in fact, when we’ve sold out people ask when more supplies will be available!”     

The Academy bakery shop is open from 10.45am-1pm Monday to Friday during term time and, as well as cakes and pastries, sells freshly-baked bread, sandwiches and hot drinks.
