Taking part in 'The World's Biggest Coffee Morning' and raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support: 29/09/17

What a fun day, taking part in 'The World's Biggest Coffee Morning' in support of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Our children, staff and families were extremely generous with their donations of yummy cake for the sale that took place on Friday... we barely had room in the kitchen!


We sold coffee and cakes from 11.30am and then again at 2.00pm along with our friends from Glebe and everyone was eager to buy some of the fantastic cakes that had been donated. We even had a visit from our local Posties who stopped in for coffee and cake to have a little break from their delivering!


At nursery the children were very excited about all the different cakes that they had brought in and of course about buying and eating them. We talked to them about how the money that we raised from selling the coffee and cakes would go to help and support people who were poorly. The Rainbow group said that they thought it was "good to help poorly people" because it would help to "make them feel better".


As well as a fun experience for our children this was a fantastic community event bringing our families, other schools and community workers in the area together. Days such as this also help our children to learn about and discuss different types of people and situations  and also to learn about the importance of generosity and charity work to help others in need which is a very important part of our PSED and British Values curriculum. 


Many thanks to all who donated and bought cake in support of Macmillan Cancer Support. In total South Normanton Nursery School raised a fantastic £133.30 to donate to this fantastic charity.
