Staff and parents took part this morning in Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest charity fundraising event. People across the UK – and sometimes further afield – hold a coffee morning, where donations on the day are made to Macmillan. In 2013 154,000 people signed up to the coffee morning, raising £20 million for charity.
For the second year running, a combination of staff and parents showed off and shared their ‘show stopping bakes’ and caught up over coffee during the morning break time, whilst raising money for this worthwhile cause.
Early Years Teaching Assistant Jackie Bath explained how “holding a coffee morning is great fun – inviting friends round for a cuppa, cake and a chat is such a simple idea but enjoyable whilst at the same time no matter how big or small the donation we are were helping to raise money for Macmillan.
There are currently 2 million people in the UK living with Cancer and by 2030 that figure will have risen to 4 million. Macmillan Cancer support want to make sure they are there for all of them. Everybody knows someone who has been affected by cancer and for many of us it will be the toughest thing we will ever face. Macmillan Cancer Support’s aim is that you don’t face that fight alone, they believe you need a team of inspiring people in your corner with you. This was a practical way we could join in and help.”
