It was all about the cakes and coffee for students and staff at Latimer Arts College who took part in Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

The college, which is in the top 100 fundraisers in Northamptonshire for the charity, ran a cake sale and coffee morning last week, with budding chefs producing their own cakes to sell.

In addition to this, there were a range of other fundraising activities enjoyed during the day, including an art competition, dressing up in green and dunking doughnuts, and staff and students dug deep to support the cause.

Mrs Chandler, achievement leader for Wicksteed House, said: “This is the fourth year that we have held this event and we have exceeded last year’s donation of over £500.

“This will go to help the Macmillan Northamptonshire Appeal to fund the Haematology Unit at Northampton General Hospital and we are delighted to be able to support this worthy cause.

“The students have taken responsibility for organising the activities and it was a pleasure to see their tasty creations on sale.”

She added: “We were pleased that Cherida Plumb, Northamptonshire fundraising manager for Macmillan, was able to attend the event and admire the efforts of our young people.

“I know that this meant a lot to them.”
