Student leaders sell cakes to their classmates to raise money for charity

On Friday 24th September student leaders at The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College served up cakes and sweet treats to their classmates and teachers as part of the world’s biggest coffee morning.

To support the students in their charity venture the school received a bumper donation of sweet treats from the local Tesco superstore. Thanks to the cakes provided by Tesco, and some of the school’s student bakers, the student led cake sale raised well over £100 for Macmillan which will be sent to the cancer support charity.

According to Macmillan’s website, the first ever Coffee Morning was a simple event that took place in 1990. Since then the Coffee Mornings have raised over £200 million for Macmillan.

Alison Davies, Headteacher, said, “It was brilliant to see our student leaders working together to raise money for charity. We are very grateful to the local Tesco store for their very generous donation, the cakes and biscuits they provided were very much enjoyed by our students and the money raise will help to support people living with cancer.”
