Countless cuppas to help cancer charity
The clunk of countless cuppas could be heard across the county last week as thousands of people took part in Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
Barnfield South Academy collected a staggering £1,266 as staff, students and parents held a baking bonanza to create a mouth-watering array of biscuits, cakes and muffins.
At the New Bedford Road campus, pupils served coffee and cake throughout the morning and provided beauty treatments and impromptu music performances to anyone prepared to donate.
Tiny tots at Moorlands managed a magnificent £484 through their gigantic cake sale.
MP Gavin Shuker was guest of honour at Barclays in Luton where he was invited to enjoy a slice of something sweet and a cuppa to turn coffee into cash.
Last year Barclays smashed its fundraising target and made £630,000 for Macmillan to make sure people living with cancer have the best team in their corner every step of the way.
Branch manager Shona Nash said: “It was a great day for both colleagues and customers.”
There was a good turnout at St Margaret’s Parish Centre (pictured left) in Bramingham where Jean Flower and members of the congregation organised several stalls and a raffle in addition to a delicious spread.
A Macmillan spokeswoman said: “We’d like to thank everyone who took time out to support us and put the kettle on to make a difference.”
