Last Friday, the pupils and teachers at The Manor CofE VC Primary School were delighted to be given the opportunity to enjoy delicious cakes and raise money for an excellent charity.
Since 1990, the annual Macmillan Coffee Morning has helped to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The event has proven to be extremely successful, with more than £200 million being raised over the last 28 years, helping the charity continue the fight against cancer.
Showing great initiative, our year 6 pupils planned a cake sale to support Macmillan. The children baked a variety of delicious treats to sell, ranging from cupcakes to delightful pastries. A number of parents were also generous enough to donate their own cakes to be sold.
The cake sale ran beyond school hours, and a group of year 6 children kindly stayed after school to help Mrs Herrera sell the cakes. They were extremely busy, selling lots of cakes and raising £58 for the charity.
Miss Shires, Assistant Principal, said: “The children demonstrated great student leadership by organising their own cake sale and staying after school hours to support the charity. Well done year 6!”
Every two minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. Every two minutes. Macmillan Cancer Support is just one of the fantastic charities that puts so much time and effort into fighting cancer and helping those with the disease.
With millions of people across the UK being affected by cancer every day, The Manor CofE VC Primary School is proud to have made a contribution to the Macmillan Cancer Support cause.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the pupils and teachers who donated, as well as the staff who arranged the event and made our fundraising possible.
