Fundraisers in and around Bridlington contributed thousands of pounds to a cancer charity after hosting MacMillan Coffee Mornings. With cakes of all shapes and sizes for sale and plenty of cups of coffee and tea on offer, the cash kept rolling in to help fund the charity.
Staff, parents and children from Burlington Infants School held their coffee morning event in the hall.
Headteacher Louise Booth said: “We received lots of cakes and buns kindly donated by staff and parents, including the amazing MacMillan ‘Winnie the Pooh’ cake, which we raffled. Families and friends were invited to join us at school after Family Assembly for coffee and then all the children enjoyed a very yummy cake or bun throughout the morning”
Louise added: “We had so many cakes donated that we were also able to hold a cake sale after school on the playground. Overall, we raised a fantastic £332.32 for MacMillan Cancer Support. Many thanks to everyone who supported us on this special occasion.”
Staff from the One-Stop shop on Flamborough Road raised the grand total of £450.67 after hosting cake stall and raffle. Customers sampled home-made cakes and biscuits and a cuppa during the morning fundraising session. To add to the MacMillan charity total, staff member Matt volunteered to have his head shaved under the expertise of James from Black Flag barbers which has a shop over the road. The MacMillan Cofffee Morning at the Bull and Sun pub on Kirkgate raised a magnificent total of £950.
The Ladies of Bridlington (Belvedere) Golf Club raised an amazing £750 in support of MacMillan Cancer charity. Over 100 members and visitors came along to the club in support of the charity, with competitions to guess the weight of a cake and stalls selling a variety of cakes and buns, and of course a raffle.
Denise Parker, Lady Captain, said: “A huge amount of work goes into organising something like this, but the support I received and the amazing amount of money we raised made it all worthwhile. I would like to thank every single person who came along, and particularly Denise Toney – I could not have done it without you.” Denise added: “We all loved doing it, it was so much fun.”
