Sixth Form Students Host a Macmillan Coffee MorningFour Sixth Form students from the Royal Alexandra and Albert School hosted a Macmillan Coffee Morning to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
For Eden Mount-Lamb, one of the Year 13 student who helped organise the Coffee Morning, Macmillan is an important charity. Her sister is a cancer survivor and has now been cancer free for a year. During her time in hospital, Macmillan offered help and advice to not only her family but other families in her hospital ward.
Eden said, “They were always there to offer support. I know that Macmillan gave comfort to families when they needed it most. They were there, especially for the families whose children were very unwell and not always getting better.”
The Coffee Morning was held in the Sunley Sixth Form Centre, and Sixth Form students supported the cause by baking and buying cakes and coffee. Eden’s sister contributed by baking a vibrant Macmillan-green cake for the event.
So many cakes were baked for the event, including cupcakes, brownies, doughnuts and a large Oreo cheesecake that the Coffee Morning was extended to the afternoon. In total, £121 was raised for Macmillan.
