Macmillan Coffee Morning

29th September 2017
Hughenden’s Macmillan Cake Sale
 
On Friday 30 September, Hughenden Primary School had a cake sale to raise money for Macmillan. Year 6 baked some delicious scones, marvellous muffins and tasty cupcakes for the whole school to enjoy as well as icing and decorating them. Not only were there cakes baked by year 6 but there were also cakes bought in by the rest of the school and tea and coffee for the grownups to enjoy as a sit down tea.
 
Macmillan supports people suffering from cancer and needing support with daily activities and housework. The nurses are sent out to those needing help and stay with them until they are no longer needed for the day, week or even forever. Although they are sent to support people with cancer they don’t cure them, the doctors and nurses cure them and the Macmillan nurses support them, making their life easier.
 
Cancer survival chances are rising, and at the moment, roughly 2.5 million people are fighting the awful disease and being treated. With the support of our coffee morning and hundreds like it, there are new treatments and effective care packages that are helping Mac Millian support people one case at a time.

We would like to express a huge thank you to everyone who came to our Macmillan High Tea event last Friday. It was lovely to see so many people. We are delighted to inform you that we managed to raise £350.00 for the organisation. It wouldn’t have been possible without your kind generosity. Well done to the Year 6 team for all their hard work!
