Year 9 girls raise over £400 for Macmillan event
2 October 2017
When the mid-morning break alarm rang through the halls on Friday morning, pupils quickly picked up their bags to dash over to the Technology Block. There was cake and hot chocolate to be had!
Olivia Tomlinson (C4), Brook Hendrickson-Flynn (D6) and Leah Greenwood (D6), with support from Miss Lewis-Lavender, had the idea for the whole school to enjoy some gorgeous treats whilst raising funds for MacMillan Cancer Support.
Donations of cake, brownies and biscuits poured in from parents and staff whilst pupils ensured there was extra cash in their pockets as they were spoilt for choice in selecting the abundance of sweet treats.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. Last year they raised £29.5 million and this year they are aiming to raise even more. There are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer. By 2030, it will be 4 million people, and they want to be there for them all. Their goal is to make sure no one faces cancer alone.
As a thank you to those children that supported Open Evening the previous day, the school made a donation so that prefects and helpers were rewarded for their hard work.
The total amount raised was £403. Well done girls!
