MacMillan Coffee Morning

Macmillan coffee morning was a huge success.

The Year 5 children had great fun preparing the class cafe and running it. The purple and green paper chains, bunting and the wonderful decorative table centres looked amazing. Year 5 enjoyed being waiters and waitresses for the morning. The children who came to visit our class Macmillan cafe enjoyed having a drink, a biscuit and drawing on our table mats. The parents and staff enjoyed tea and cakes to raise money for this good cause.

Thank you for all your donations we raised £292!
