Students and staff at De Aston School raised more than £280 as part of the ‘World’s biggest coffee morning’ in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Year 9 students Grace Lucas, Megan Grant, Jade Philpott and Laura Fussey baked a huge range of sweet treats - including brownies, fairy cakes, flapjacks, cupcakes, cookies and more - to sell at break and lunch time.

“The Year 9 Girls did an absolute fantastic job in raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support,” said Shelly Futter, Head of Year 9.

“Grace Lucas was the driving force behind the event as it is something that lies very close to her heart.

“The girls organised the day, promoted it across the school in assemblies and tutor groups, and should be truly commended for their efforts.

“The day was a great success and their home baked cakes were simply divine.”

In addition, staff took part in a bake off competition and guessed the number of coffee beans in a jar.
