School coffee morning boosts cancer charity

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.”
