The now annual Macmillan fundraiser was a huge success again this year at Alsager Sixth Form, exceeding the target that was set at £500. Not only does this reflect the dedication of Alsager’s students to fundraising, but the morning also serves as a coming together for the Lower and Upper Sixth year 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 some more traditional bakes such as the classic Victoria sponge. As the name would suggest, there was also coffee, tea and juice on-hand for a light refreshment. Two students volunteering at the cake stand were student leadership team members Olly Haken and Chloe Brakner, who said: “The bake sale went brilliantly this year, everyone who baked and got involved for such a brilliant cause have been fantastic” and they thanked the whole of the student leadership team and staff who organised the event.
Some of our Year 12 students also put their musical talents to use with a variety of songs from Queen to Electric Light Orchestra being sung throughout the event as well.
Director of Sixth Form, Alison 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”.
The target being exceeded demonstrates that to raise money for a worthy cause like Macmillan, all you need is a bit of cake and some willing volunteers.
