On Friday 27th September, the John Madejski Academy hosted a coffee morning for staff in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Since 1990, the annual Macmillan Coffee Morning has helped to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The event has proven to be extremely successful, with more than £200 million being raised over the last 29 years, helping the charity continue the fight against cancer.
Last Friday, at break and lunch time, staff were treated to an array of homemade cakes and biscuits baked by their colleagues. To further contribute toward the fundraising efforts, we also held a raffle. As a result, we were able to raise in excess of £150!
Julie Godfrey, KS3 Administrator, said: "Everyone at JMA recognises how great it is to help raise money for good causes like Macmillan Cancer Support, and enjoying great cakes in return is just a bonus."
Every two minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. Every two minutes. Macmillan Cancer Support is just one of the fantastic charities that puts so much time and effort into fighting cancer and helping those with the disease.
With millions of people across the UK being affected by cancer every day, John Madejski Academy is proud to have made a contribution to the Macmillan Cancer Support cause.
We would like to say a huge thank you to the members of staff who baked cakes, as well as those who arranged the event, took part, and made our fundraising possible.
