Our school has raised £70.00 for people living with cancer by hosting an event as part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s World Biggest Coffee Morning.
The event was held on Wednesday 25th September in the school hall, and was open to our Stay & Play group and the parents and carers of pupils.
We are so pleased to have raised such a good amount for Macmillan Cancer Support, in the space of a short coffee morning. Every pound counts and will make such a difference to people living with cancer. We want to thank everyone who baked, came and made it such a success.
Macmillan is almost entirely funded by donations and simply cannot support the growing number of people with cancer who need them, without the public’s help. Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. There are over 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK and this is set to grow to almost 4 million by 2030.
Support people with cancer in your community to live life as fully as they can, by joining in Macmillan’s Coffee Morning this September. For more information go to: www.macmillan.org.uk/coffee
