Students at Cadbury Sixth Form College tucked into tea and cakes to raise hundreds of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The students were supporting the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, which invites people to fundraise for the charity by taking time out for a slice of cake. Cake stalls were set up across campus and staff and students at the specialist sixth form tucked in to some home-made delights.
The event, which was organised by nineteen second year A-Level students, kick-starts a year of fundraising activities and charity work at the college. Some of the students donated treats whilst others took the time to bake their own cakes.The event, which ran for three hours on Friday 26th September, raised £259.41.
The charity enrichment programme at Cadbury College enables students to spend the year organising events and activities to fundraise for both local and international charity projects.
During the year, the students will link up with Free the Children, an international education charity, and take part in the ‘We Act’ programme, which supports young people to make a difference through community work.
Nadia Mughal, Specialist Tutor and Charity Enrichment Leader at Cadbury College, said:
“The event was a real success and demonstrates just what can be achieved with enthusiasm, team work and dedication. We raised an impressive amount in such short space of time and it’s great for the college to see so many students and staff raising money to support Macmillan.”
