Youngsters get first taste of work experience at Highgate steak restaurant

Youngsters gained some valuable work experience at a local restaurant to boost their career prospects, thanks to the help of a Highgate charity.

Pupils enrolled on summer courses run by the Alexandra Wylie Tower Foundation (AWTF) learnt how to create the perfect steak sandwich at newly-opened Popeseye restaurant in Highgate Hill, Highgate, on Friday.

Their creations will be on sale at AWTF’s annual Pinknic in the Park on September 5 in Waterlow Park, Highgate.

AWTF helps disadvantaged young people across north London. It was set up in memory of 17-year-old Highgate schoolgirl Allie Wylie.

AWTF founder Lindsey Wylie said: “For many young people we support, it is impossible to get a job without some work experience. Please come to the Pinknic and support these youngsters.”
