This year at King Edward VII College, we had our own version of a coffee morning in the form of a cake sale on Friday 29th.
Macmillan Coffee Morning is a worldwide charity event that happens at the end of September every year. Macmillan supports those with cancer as well as their families, the money donated to them is used to pay for specialist Macmillan nurses, used to reach out and improve the lives of those affected with the illness and used to fund a telephone helpline which answers questions and provides support.
This year, at King Edward VII Science & Sports College, we had our own version of a coffee morning in the form of a cake sale on Friday 29th September in order to raise money to help others. We sold homemade tray-bakes, cookies, cupcakes, flapjacks, brownies and many more sweet treats to the delight of the students and staff alike. The brownies were an instant hit, selling out in less than five minutes. Earlier in the day, the school also received a visit from two local police officers who had caught wind of the upcoming cake sale; they had first pick from the bakes and kick-started the donation tally.
The final total raised amounted to an amazing £145 which will allow Macmillan to make a real difference to the lives of many people. I would like to thank all those who helped run the cake stall as well as all of the students and staff who donated to Macmillan by buying a slice of cake. The support has been outstanding.
