The now annual Macmillan fundraiser was a huge success again this year, pulling in an impressive total of over £632, exceeding the target that was set at £500. Not only does this reflect the dedication of our students to fundraising, but the morning also serves as a coming together for the lower and upper sixth form groups as the first major event on the calendar.
This year’s coffee morning saw a variety of cakes baked and brought in by the students including scones, brownies and muffins as well as guess the weight of the cake. As the name would suggest, there was also coffee, tea and juice on-hand for a light refreshment. One student volunteering at the cake stand was Head Boy Jakob Harper, who said: “The bake sale went brilliantly this year, more people than ever baked and got involved for such a brilliant cause”. He thanked the student leadership team and staff who organised the event.
Director of Sixth Form, Mrs Pole, said: “The coffee morning was a great opportunity for the new year 12 students to get to know the year 13 students better over a coffee and a piece of cake – and all in aid of a fantastic cause”.
In fact, the target was exceeded within an hour of the event opening, which further demonstrates that, to raise a lot of money for a worthy cause like Macmillan, all you need is a bit of cake and some willing volunteers.
