‘Ash House’ pupils come to­gether to raise funds for can­cer sup­port

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORING -

PUPILS clubbed to­gether to help raise thou­sands for a can­cer char­ity.

Stu­dents from Tyther­ing­ton School’s ‘Ash House’ got in­volved in a range of ac­tiv­i­ties to help drum up funds for McMillan Can­cer Sup­port.

And al­to­gether the hard-work­ing stu­dents man­aged to raise a to­tal of £2,200 for the char­ity, which helps pa­tients who live with can­cer, car­ers, fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties. It also funds nurses and other spe­cial­ist health care pro­fes­sion­als and build­ing can­cer care cen­tres.

Money was raised through dif­fer­ent ini­tia­tives, in­clud­ing a cof­fee and cake morn­ing, a non-uni­form day or­gan­ised by Ash House stu­dents and run by the house’s cap­tains.

Some money was also raised through a staff cof­fee morn­ing.

Af­ter all the dona­tions were put to­gether, the school held a spe­cial cer­e­mony dur­ing which Louisa Walm­s­ley, the fundrais­ing manager for McMillan in Cheshire East, came in the col­lect the cheque on be­half of the char­ity from Ash house’s cap­tains (pic­tured).

Cath Li­naker is one of the school’s PE teach­ers and head of Ash House. Cath, who has worked at Tyther­ing­ton School for more than 10 years, said: “It was amaz­ing to see the re­sponse from all of the stu­dents, we had ta­bles full of cakes to sell.

“It shows how ev­ery­one can pull to­gether to raise money for such a good cause.”
