Pupils and staff from Tong Leadership Academy put the kettle on this morning to raise £150 for Macmillan Cancer.

Supporting the charity’s annual World’s Largest Coffee Morning event, sixth form pupils shared cakes that they had baked with staff and peers.

Together they raised a large sum for the cancer charity which is close to many people’s hearts.

Parents, pupils and staff provided some amazing speciality cakes to be sold, which were all consumed very quickly.

Dan Styles, Principal of Tong Leadership Academy, said:

“I’m proud of all our pupils for going the extra mile to support our Macmillan Cancer coffee morning. They contributed cakes they had baked, bought treats and made donations with such kindness and generosity. What’s more, our event brought together our school community for a great cause. It really was wonderful for all our pupils to be a part of.”
