Wisbech students raise £435 for Macmillan Cancer Support as part of ‘Biggest Coffee Morning’ campaign
Sixth form students at Wisbech Grammar School students have raised more than £400 for charity after organising a Macmillan cake sale.
The pupils from the newly formed ‘charity committee’ organised the sale for the Macmillan Cancer Support as part of their Biggest Coffee Morning campaign.
The school was invited to buy cakes at break time on Friday, September 28.
A spokesman said: “It was a great success, and there was a real community feel as everyone tucked into their cakes raising money. A total of £425.50 was raised.”
Parents and staff were also given access to a text code where they could send a text to donate, raising £15.
Kate Taylor, head of sixth form, said: “Well done and thank you to the 6th Form Charity Committee for your hard work in organising the event.
“I am overwhelmed by all the time and effort put into baking and preparing for the coffee morning by the committee and the amazing bakers!
Molly Sears, committee chairman, said: “The event was great fun and brought together people of all ages with something we all love… Cake!
“Thank you very much to everyone that baked or helped out.”
