hosted a cof­fee morn­ing for Macmil­lan, with par­ents queu­ing up to sam­ple all the de­li­cious cakes on of­fer.

And after that, ev­ery­one headed for the school gym where there was a ‘pink pa­rade’ for breast can­cer aware­ness, with all the kids pay­ing a pound to dress in pink.

Once that was done, the par­ents and staff were en­ter­tained by tal­ented singers, mu­si­cians and dancers from the school.

It proved a great event, with the chil­dren rais­ing be­tween £400 and £500 for Macmil­lan and a fur­ther £100 for Breast Can­cer UK.

School sec­re­tary, Co­ral Small, said: “The par­ents all bought tick­ets for the cof­fee morn­ing and it was very busy.

“We de­cided sev­eral years ago to do it this way, for both char­i­ties, so we had the cof­fee morn­ing for Macmil­lan and the ‘pink pa­rade’ for Breast Can­cer.

“We com­bine the two and just have a day of mad­ness.”

The event is or­gan­ised by the p5/6 class, along with their teacher, Shona Cald­well, each year as part of an en­ter­prise project.
