School coffee morning boosts cancer charity
PUBLISHED: 11:00 20 October 2012
Sidmouth College students gave a boost to a cancer cause with a charity coffee morning last Friday.
Each year the Sixth Form collectively choose a charity to support, and this year Macmillan is the lucky beneficiary.
Their first event was the nationwide coffee morning, which pulled in more than £300 as the Sixth Form prepared coffee and homemade cakes for staff and students.
Head girl Katherine Perchard-Richards and head boy Theo Boalch said: “We collectively chose Macmillan because a number of staff and students have been directly affected by cancer, including our previous principal, Mr Roberts, who sadly lost his wife to the disease earlier this year.”
They added: “We are looking forward to planning and organising more Macmillan fundraising activities in the near future.”
