Delicious Treats for Macmillan Coffee Morning

Friday, 26 September 2014

The Junior Girls’ Parents’ Association brought their daughters into school extra early to set up the hall for the Macmillan Coffee Morning. Bringing in cakes, pastries, and plenty of tea and coffee, they filled the hall with friendly chatter and a wonderful family atmosphere as parents flocked in after dropping off their daughters in the playground. With Danish pastries, lemon drizzle cake, cupcakes, croissants, and home made Victoria sponge and sticky ginger and lemon cakes on offer, everyone who came along was spoiled for choice!

Mandy Hundle, who is the Joint Chair and Secretary of the P.A., was very pleased with the turnout. She said, “The Coffee Morning has built up over the last three years. I thought it would be a good opportunity for the new Year 3 parents, but it’s popular with parents of older girls too. A lot of the ‘regulars’ are here!”

Parents sat and chatted together while enjoying their sweet treats and a warm drink, before setting down to enjoy a special assembly with their daughters. Hesketh House Headmistress Mrs Brierley spoke to the girls about perspective and the idea of ‘sitting in someone else’s seat’, with a little help from some volunteers from the visiting parents!

The Macmillan Coffee Morning was well attended and a huge success, raising £304.63 for cancer research – a total which is still climbing! This is a fantastic achievement for the P.A., who made the event special and helped to give it a warm and friendly atmosphere throughout.
