This morning we have seen a huge number of amazing cakes being bought into the theatre foyer to prepare for the Macmillan coffee morning. Staff and students have obviously been busy baking for many hours! We began last year with our own coffee morning and received lots of support from the students and parents and so thought we would hold another this year. It is lovely to welcome people into the school and be able to raise money for such a worthy course and one that affects so may of us.
Macmillan………How did it all begin?
The first ever Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It was so effective, we did it again the next year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.
