On Friday 26 September, Colonel Frank Seely Academy took part in Macmillan Cancer Relief’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning 2014 to raise money for people living with cancer and also in memory of pupil Amy Hall.
The event was held in our catering facilities ‘Colonel’s Café’ from 9:15am to 10:45am. Year 8 pupils provided a waiter service – they did a brilliant job serving approximately 50 people throughout the morning, with tea, coffee and cakes. We also held a raffle for the charity and with the proceeds also going to Macmillan and sold wristbands in aid of Leukaemia Research in aid of Amy.
Year 8 pupil, Sophie Towle (age 12) also held a cake sale on the Taylor Wimpey estate in Mapperley where she lives with her friend and raised £230 for the charity.
Trina Ridgill, School Business Manager, said “The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning gives young people at our school the chance to make a real difference to people living with cancer, and their families”.
The sun shone, and the atmosphere was wonderful – a brilliant community spirit. We raised a whopping £634 for the Macmillan charity.
