Brackenfield School took part in the world’s biggest coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research on Friday 29rd September raising an amazing £640 for this worthwhile cause.
The money was raised by Year 6 pupils who planned and ran their own stalls including Soak the Teachers, cake stalls, pre-loved books and toys stalls, treasure hunts, lucky dip and even a virtual reality experience .
Each class was able to spend time enjoying the activities at the start of the day. The morning started with an assembly on Macmillan where children learnt about the charity and of course, there was plenty of coffee for parents.
Mr. Bolton, Deputy-Head was delighted with the event:
The pupils showed tremendous enterprise in their ideas for such a range of stalls and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Principal, Anthony Comerford added ” This is such a worthwhile charity, one that so many of us have direct experience of. There was a lovely atmosphere in the hall and everyone should feel so pleased with raising such an amazing amount for MacMillan.
A big thank you goes to all the parents who helped and attended, including baking such wonderful cakes, and to Year 6 and their Form Tutor, Mrs. Wardell for organising such a successful event.
Brackenfield has openmornings on 6 & 7 October 2017 – see www.brackenfieldschool.co.uk for further details.
