Cockshut Hill School raised funds for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking part in the world’s biggest coffee morning
On Friday the 24th of September, Cockshut Hill School held a Macmillan coffee morning to raise vital funds for people living with cancer.
The first ever Macmillan Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It was so effective, they did it again the next year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £290 million for Macmillan.
Mr Jason Bridges, Principal at Cockshut Hill said:
“I am so proud of all the students and staff who contributed to making this such a successful event. Macmillan provide invaluable support to those battling cancer and I know the money raised from the Coffee Morning is going to make a real difference to the lives of those in need of their help.”
