Macmillan coffee morning - let them eat cake
10 October 2019
When break-time arrived last Friday pupils quickly picked up their bags to dash over to the Auditorio - there was cake to be had!
Overseen by Deputy Head & Food Technology teacher, Mrs Cowell, once again the whole school got 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 £27 million and they are hoping for another successful year. 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 Priory’s Open Evening, the school made a donation so that prefects and helpers were rewarded for giving up their time.
During the Open Evening, visitors donated cash in the Food Technology Department in exchange for a mini sponge cake which the youngsters then decorated under the instruction of our pupil helpers.
The total amount raised was £175.94 so it was sure to say everyone got to have their cake and eat it!
