School raises record amount for MacMillan Cancer Support

Macmillan Cancer Support

The first ever Macmillan Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with guests gathering for a cup of coffee or tea and then donating the cost of their drink to Macmillan. The format proved so popular that the following year it went national. Here at Rockwood we have been collaborating with Macmillan Cancer Support for many years. This year we raised a record amount for this event!

Students in all year groups worked collaboratively with staff to put on our largest coffee morning to date with an enviable range of cakes for sale. Here at Rockwood we encourage our students to be good citizens and this includes taking part in events which support charities. It also demonstrates to them that raising money for charities can be fun and enjoyable.

A student said, “It’s great to see so many cakes, bought by so many staff and students in aid of such a fantastic cause.”

This year the school fundraising totalled: £794.24.

A fantastic amount of money all going to an incredibly worthy cause.
