On Friday 28th September Year 6 held a MacMillan coffee morning for their parents. Many children baked a cake (or more) to give to the parents and teachers in the hope of receiving a generous donation.
During this event we managed to raise a successful £488 plus Gift Aid. So the parents were not bored, we set up quizzes and games for them to enjoy whilst eating their cakes and drinking their tea or coffee. As a result of each child being so committed to baking cakes we had plenty left over, which the teachers were grateful for as all of the spare cakes were sent to the staff room for more donations.
We asked a couple of Year 6s themselves what they thought of the fundraiser. Anabelle told us, “It was a great way to raise money and I loved the experience!” Rahil and Ollie said, ”As we love charity this was a great activity to raise so much money.” When it all ended everyone was happy with the turn out but sad it was all over.
