MacMillan Coffee Morning – 25th September 2015

Today at Buckden CE Primary Academy we had an amazing day of fundraising. Our children dressed in green to show their support of Macmillan for a donation, our kitchen made biscuits that were sold at breaktime. Also our PTA held a coffee morning with lots of amazing cakes for our parents. It is important as a school that we support not only international and national fund raising projects but local ones too As

“Building the new £2.4million Macmillan Woodlands Centre will mean that all outpatient oncology services can be brought back together at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, in one state-of-the-art building. It will mean more choice for local people, providing treatment on their doorstep instead of making long journeys to other centres when unwell”. A big thank you to all our families for their fantastic support for this cause to date we raised over £370.

Local school raises more than £370 for Woodlands Centre

Last month Buckden CE Primary Academy held a Macmillan Coffee morning, raising more than £370 for our Macmillan Woodlands Centre Appeal.

As part of the morning the children all dressed in green to show their support of Macmillan and the school kitchen made a delicious selection of biscuits that were sold during break times. Parents joined in with the fundraising, holding a coffee morning organised by the parent teacher association (PTA).

PTA representative and Hinchingbrooke Head of Medical Records/Information Governance Lead Kim Graves said: “It is important as a school that we support not only international and national fundraising projects but local ones too. Building the new £2.4million Macmillan Woodlands Centre will mean that all outpatient oncology services can be brought back together at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, in one state-of-the-art building, meaning more choice for local people.”
