A successful Macmillan Coffee Morning
Children at Cedars Park transformed their assembly hall into the town’s biggest and busiest café to raise an amazing £813 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The coffee morning saw pupils take on a variety of roles – from servers to chefs channeling their best Great British Bake Off vibes – and host their parents and teachers in the school hall.
Aisha Suhail, Headteacher, said: “It was an absolutely wonderful day. Everyone was having such an amazing time and really enjoyed the children’s creations.
“There was an enormous sense of pride in the children among both the parents and the staff – they did such an incredible job.”
As well as serving a delicious array of tasty treats, teas and coffees, the children also created their own games to raise extra funds for the charity.
This included a human fruit machine, where three children randomly selected a piece of fruit from a box for the chance to win a prize.
Aisha added: “The addition of the games really added to the atmosphere, it all made for such a special morning.
“Many of the children have personal experiences with cancer in their families and see it as their moral duty to support such a worthy cause. The children really get into their roles and it is so amazing to see.
“I am so proud of them all, our Year 5 staff and everyone in the school community for putting on such a fantastic event.”
“What an absolutely brilliant morning, it was so well organised. All the pupils were so polite and engaging. They were an absolute credit to the school.” - Parent
