Cof­fee event cash boost

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

MAGHULL High Sixth Form came to­gether to host a Macmil­lan Cof­fee Morn­ing and helped raise over £450 for peo­ple liv­ing with can­cer.

Bring­ing mil­lions of peo­ple to­gether for cof­fee and cake each Septem­ber, Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port’s World’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing has be­come a Bri­tish in­sti­tu­tion over the years – with thou­sands of events hap­pen­ing up and down the coun­try.

As part of their cof­fee morn­ing, Maghull High’s Sixth Form stu­dents chose to in­vite Macmil­lan’s very own nurses whom this event cen­tres around, and were de­lighted to wel­come staff from their team at Ain­tree hos­pi­tal.

It was an hon­our for staff and stu­dents to meet the team of Macmil­lan nurses and hear first hand of the in­cred­i­ble work they do to sup­port those liv­ing with can­cer.

Speak­ing af­ter the event, As­sis­tant Head of Sixth Form Miss Mur­phy said: “We re­ally en­joyed do­ing our bit for this year’s Cof­fee Morn­ing.

“It was great to get peo­ple to­gether, have a nib­ble and a nat­ter and raise money for Macmil­lan to help peo­ple liv­ing with can­cer at the same time.

“I want to thank ev­ery­one who sup­ported and helped to make it a suc­cess.

“Can­cer has af­fected all at Maghull High School, ei­ther di­rectly or in­di­rectly and some have worked closely with Macmil­lan, so it was nice to give back to such a worth­while cause.

“I am so proud of our fan­tas­tic Sixth Form stu­dents for their over­whelm­ing sup­port in mak­ing our Cof­fee Morn­ing such a suc­cess by not only help­ing with its or­gan­i­sa­tion, but through the count­less cakes they brought in to be sold.

“Our stu­dents have proven once again their un­wa­ver­ing kind­ness and gen­eros­ity when it comes to rais­ing money for char­ity.”
