The pupils and staff from Waterloo lodge School took part in the world’s biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 27th September with people from all over the UK, with all donations going to MacMillan.
The first ever Coffee Morning happened back in 1990 but it was a much smaller affair then, with the simple idea that guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It was so effective that they did it again the next year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.
Here are a few examples of the wonderful cakes on offer
Macmillan understand how cancer can affect every aspect of people’s lives – health, money, family, job, everything. After more than 100 years of caring, they understand that the most important thing is to treat people as individuals, not patients. They take the time to understand the support people need to live their lives as fully as they can. From the moment of diagnosis, they are there to help people find their best way through. MacMillan’s help is totally focused on each individual person, so everyone receives the support that’s best for them.
With this in mind pupils and staff brought in, bought and baked various cakes for the day (using time and lessons in school attached to the curriculum) with pupils and staff being able to purchase cakes through a variety of ways in school during the break period to help raise money for the charity. The best cakes were judged and priced accordingly adding a competitive edge between pupils and staff.
A fantastic day was enjoyed by all, with the chance for everyone to simply have a chat whilst helping a great charitable cause. Thanks MacMillan
