Macmillan Cake Sale Raises Magnificent £567.14

IMG 20190927 134747Students and staff have raised over £500 for Macmillan through our first Macmillan Coffee Morning - the biggest coffee morning in the UK.

Harris Academy Battersea rallied together as a school running a coffee morning for staff and a lunchtime cake sale for students on Friday 27th September.

Fuelled by the incredible job Macmillan do to help people living with cancer – financially, physically and emotionally – all staff and many students lent a hand.

HABS Macmillan Coffee Morning began with an abundance of cakes being collected in the staff room coupled with a coffee machine, croissants, crepes, music, a ‘Guess the Baby’ game and a raffle. Throughout the morning staff were donating generously and sharing their stories about Macmillan and their personal connection to the cause.

Just before lunch, a handful of HABS staff came together again to transport the Macmillan Coffee Morning from the staff room to the quad for the students’ cake sale.


Vast selection of cakes

As the bell rang for lunch and the students descended onto the playground desperate for cake the marvellous chaos unfolded. Students’ eyes lit up as they caught sight of the vast selection of cakes, brownies, cookies and doughnuts that their teachers (and some students!) had gone to the efforts to make and buy for them to help to raise money for Macmillan.

Student helpers from Years 7-13 were assisting in selling cakes and collecting donations from students and staff all around the school. Students were coming together to buy cakes for themselves and friends, insisting that we ‘keep the change’ since the money was going to a good cause.

The selflessness with which students acted in the name of charity was eternally heart-warming and led HABS’ first Macmillan Coffee Morning to raise a whopping £567.14 to help Macmillan to support people living with cancer.

The first HABS Macmillan Coffee Morning was a great success and we hope to organise more events like this to encourage our students to think charitably.
