Lowerplace joins the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning


Lowerplace are pleased to be taking part once again in Macmillan Cancer Support’s coffee morning on Friday 26th September 2014.

Our coffee morning will be held in the Key Stage 2 Hall from 9:15am to 10:30 this Friday.

We’re asking for donations of cakes and biscuits to sell at break time in Foundation, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. Children can bring in 20p to buy a treat during their break.

Please bring in any donations to the school offices before Friday 26th September.

We will also have information for adult learning. This will be a great opportunity for you as parents to see what school has to offer and also for you to take part in activities.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday.

MacMillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

Today we took part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, a fundraising campaign from MacMillan Cancer Support.

MacMillan are a charity that provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support for people living with cancer.

We are so proud of all of our parents and children who kindly donated cakes, buns and biscuits – quite a few of them home-made! We had a good turn out at the coffee morning; I think the tea, cakes and good company were a welcome sight after being caught in the atrocious rain on the school run!

You will be pleased to know that in total we raised a whopping £328.08! We are extremely grateful for your kindness and generosity, you have all helped to make a difference.

For those of you who entered into the MacMillan raffle, they will draw the winners after the 8th of November and contact you directly if you have won.

Thank you again everyone.
