Sandwich is The Don

STUDENTS at Milton Keynes College were chomping at the bit in a challenge to create a new Subway sandwich.

And their efforts saw them finish as runners-up in an national competition. They were awarded £750 worth of vouchers and a six foot version of their sandwich.

The challenge asked students to come up with an original design using ingredients that fit a theme that they had come up with.

And they beat off strong competition from around 40 entries to pitch The Don in front of Subway officials.

The Don was created by students Charlotte Barnett, Reece Parker-Smith, Tom Holden, Morgan Partridge, Gareth Ottaway and Chris Thomas as a tribute to fans of Milton Keynes Dons.

It had sausage to keep fans full, and mayonnaise and black olives to represent the team colours.

Business studies leader at the college, Helen Meijer, said: “The students really enjoyed taking part in the challenge. It gave them a hands on opportunity and enjoyable way to put their business skills to the test.”

Subway entrepreneur, Bob Moodliar, said: “The pupils really have done a fantastic job to get so far and should be extremely proud of their achievements.

“We were really impressed with the entry and the level of work that the team obviously put into it.”
