GALLERY: Fenland puts the kettle on for World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan
IT was time to put the kettle on at schools, businesses and clubs across Fenland today for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
The annual event raises millions of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support - and as always Fenland played its part.
Among those places to raise cash was Alderman Jacobs Primary School, at Whittlesey. The school’s event was organised by teaching assistant Maureen Bielawski and has become a regular feature in the school calendar because of its previous success.
Nicola Parker, assistant head teacher of Alderman Jacobs Primary School, said: “All members of staff came and shared a coffee and cake over the morning to help raise funds for a charity which is close to our hearts.
“Thanks has to go to the team of bakers who provided the cakes for us all to munch on.”
