Thank you for helping our Sixth Form raise £588 for Macmillan Cancer Support!

macmillanOur Sixth Form girls worked hard organising and promoting their Macmillan coffee event yesterday and their efforts certainly paid off! Thanks to the many parents, grandparents, pupils and staff who enjoyed the cakes and bakes, entered the “Best Bake” competition and bought raffle tickets, a whopping £588 has been raised for the charity. The girls will be writing to thank the companies who donated raffle prizes and would like to say a massive thank you, too, to all who came, and especially to those who made or gave items to share.

The homemade cakes were judged by our chef Howard Bowen on appearance, texture and taste – congratulations to Matilda’s mum, Mrs Kelly,  for the truly scrumptious chocolate cake which won first prize! The worthy runner-up was Hayden, who made a very tasty sponge cake with the help of his Mum and big brother Harvey.
