Coffee and Cake Launch College Charity Fundraising

29 September 2017 | College News

City College has kick-started its annual fundraising efforts by joining people across the country in ‘The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Every year, students and staff at the College raise thousands of pounds for good causes, including a nominated charity which is the focus for their fundraising efforts. This year, the College has chosen to work with Macmillan – a charity committed to providing support, information and guidance to everyone dealing with cancer.

“We want to say thank you to everyone at City College for choosing us as their charity sponsor this year,” said Sian Ward-Edwards, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan. “The money raised will help us to keep providing vital services to people living with cancer and their families. The world’s biggest coffee morning is one of our favourite events we get to eat cake for a cause! This is such a successful start to the College’s fundraising efforts and I’ve seen so many delicious bakes.”

Jo Williams, Events Officer at City College, said: “Our students and staff are so enthusiastic and the coffee morning is just the start. We have raised a grand total of £149.24 today thanks to the generosity and efforts of College students and staff. The College is looking forward to a year of fundraising events with Macmillan and we hope to raise as much money as we can for this amazing charity.”

Last year the College raised nearly £3,300 for Plymouth and District Mind, the charity that helps those affected by mental health lead independent lives within the community. Students and staff volunteered countless hours and will be hoping to have similar success this year with Macmillan.
