Supporting Macmillan at the Raedwald Trust

Last month, students and staff members across the Raedwald Trust joined in with Macmillan’s ‘Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning’ by holding sales and events at sites across the Trust.

Students at Montgomery Road Campus baked a big batch of cakes for Macmillan and then took their stall mobile by visiting each of the Trust sites to sell their cakes!

Julie Cox, Head of School at Montgomery Road said: “The Monty boys raised £53.04 with their mobile cake sale in aid of Macmillan cancer. Congratulations to those involved who planned and budgeted to make £40.00 – you exceeded expectations and have proved yourselves to be star bakers!”

Lindbergh Campus also held a Macmillan Coffee morning, with students helping to set up and serve whilst Kim, Amanda and Nicola from Lindbergh assisted. The event was attended by parents, carers and students.

Kim Charlesworth, Head of School at Lindbergh said: “We were delighted to see our Chair of Trustees who came to support us, as did the coaches from Positive Futures (a national sports and activity social inclusion programme which works with young people to prevent anti-social behaviour and reduce crime). We also put on an Art Exhibition for student Arts Awards and the whole morning was deemed a massive success. The icing on the cake was that we raised £90!

“A special thank you goes to one of our teachers, Nicola Edwards, for all her baking and efforts making posters.”

At Raedwald Trust we work hard to support charities and local communities by engaging our students in these activities. We believe that there is significant benefits for our students, staff and communities when we raise the profile of charities such as Macmillan.

Thank you and well done to everyone who took part and supported this fantastic cause!
