Coffee and Cakes for Macmillan


On Wednesday 25th May we hosted a coffee morning to support our English Teacher in her bid to walk 26 miles in the Lakes district for MacMillan Cancer Support on 18th June 2022.


Mcmillan Coffee Morning


This is a message from our wonderful Teacher, Bryony:


"I just wanted to say a HUGE thanks for your super generous donations of both bakes and money to help my cake sale be a big success. I organised a cake sale to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Care as I'm doing a 26 mile walk on June 18th and £250 has to be raised. Thanks to Paula, Amy, Steve, Kirsty and others we had a HUGE range of cakes, bakes and biscuits on sale. It was lovely to have Shap Road residents at Windermere Road and it was a great, bubbly atmosphere as well as being lovely to have visitors who enjoyed sitting down to a cuppa and a cake! Currently the total stands at £120 which is incredible and now means that, in total, I have raised about £150 towards my £250 goal! Thanks so much everyone - this really does illustrate what a generous and kind bunch you all are!


THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! And big thanks to Whinfell staff and students who helped me set up and tidy away, I wouldn’t have managed it without you."
