Have Your Cake And Eat It For Charity

Macmillan Cancer Support

Big hearted Kensington and Chelsea College students are laying on a sweet treat in support of a national fundraiser for a cancer charity.

The Childcare students will be selling home-made and store bought cakes for Macmillan Cancer Support’s National Coffee Morning, taking place on Friday September 28.

Billed as ‘The world’s Biggest Coffee Morning’, the event encourages people across the UK to host coffee sessions to raise money for the charity.

The students are encouraging people to visit their cake stand on Friday September 28 to buy a tasty treat to go with their coffee. All proceeds from the cake sale will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.

The cakes are being sold from 11am at the College’s Chelsea Centre Canteen, in Hortensia Road, SW10 0QS.

Childcare tutor Tracie Fryer-Kanssen, who is helping organise the cake sale at the college, said: “The coffee morning is a great way to show support for the work being carried out by the charity as well, as raise vital funds. And with the cake and coffee morning taking place at the start of the new academic year, it’s also a really good way for new students to meet and get to know each other outside of class.”

The coffee morning campaign is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event. Last year 51,000 people signed up to coffee morning, raising a record £10 million.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE ANY CAKES PLEASE DROP THEM OFF ON THURSDAY OR FRIDAY MORNING TO TRACIE IN ROOM 210 AT THE CHELSEA CENTRE.
