Henry Hinde Junior School pupils raised more than £400 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Over 150 parents, carers and grandparents joined pupils and staff for their annual Macmillan Cancer Support coffee morning on September 24.

Sharing a cup of coffee with cakes that had been baked and donated by the school community raised over £400 for the charity.

Pupils felt this was an important event to bring the community together for an important cause.

Year 6 pupils Elliott Dean and Luci Nevett said: “It was an amazing morning” with a “fabulous turnout”.

The morning concluded with a raffle draw for a fabulous cake made and donated by Marie Daulman a longstanding member of the school staff.

Henry Hinde pupils work hard each year to raise money for a chosen charity, alongside their work for MacMillan.

This year the school aims to raise £1,000 for Muscular Dystrophy UK.

This charity is particularly significant as a pupil suffers from a rare form of the disease.

CEO of NET Academies Maxine Evans, the Trust running the school, said: “This has been a truly wonderful occasion, bringing the school community together and developing pupils understanding of themselves, each other and the world in which they live.”

Toni Jackson, Acting Headteacher, said: “The staff, children and families of Henry Hinde Junior School have come together to provide a wonderfully

successful community event. I am extremely proud to be associated with the school and would like to thank all those involved in working together to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support.”
