Your cof­fee morn­ings help raise cash

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

A CON­FER­ENCE cen­tre raised £180 for Macmil­lan Can­cer in a bake-off com­pe­ti­tion on Fri­day.

Mis­senden Abbey, in London Road, Great Mis­senden, took part in the World’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing for Macmil­lan Can­cer Support.

A medal for first prize went to a cake made by Jessica Sweeting, a house­keeper at Mis­senden Abbey, sec­ond prize to Melissa Chatwin, whose daugh­ter Eloise works at the con­fer­ence cen­tre, and third prize to Sarah Buck­thorpe, who is also a house­keeper at the con­fer­ence cen­tre.

The com­pe­ti­tion was judged by Kate Weare, head chef at Café Twit at The Roald Dahl Mu­seum and Story Cen­tre, in High Street, Great Mis­senden, Jan­ice Ben­son and El­iz­a­beth Web­ster of Great Mis­senden Women’s In­sti­tute and Eva Ne­u­pauer-Jones, gen­eral man­ager of Mis­senden Abbey.

Mrs Ne­u­pauer-Jones said: “The bake-off and the cof­fee morn­ing all went ex­tremely well and it was a tough decision but the win­ners def­i­nitely de­served their medals.” SIXTH for­m­ers baked cakes to sell for Macmil­lan.

Bea­cons­field High School, in Wat­tle­ton Road, Bea­cons­field joined in with the fundrais­ing drive from Wed­nes­day to Fri­day, rais­ing nearly £1,000.

Year 13 pre­fects sold tea and cof­fee dur­ing break time to the lo­cal com­mu­nity to raise funds for Macmil­lan Can­cer Support as part of the World’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing.

On Fri­day the school held a cake sale, with the maths depart­ment do­ing the bak­ing.
