Staff And Students Find An Espresso Way To Raise Funds For Charity
Big hearted staff and students from Kensington and Chelsea College took part in a national coffee morning recently that got the money rolling in for charity.
Billed as ‘The world’s Biggest Coffee Morning’, the event saw people across the UK hosting coffee sessions to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Among them were staff and students from the Childcare Department who raised around £50 selling cakes and coffee at the college’s Marlborough Centre.
The coffee morning campaign is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event. Last year 43,000 people registered for it, raising £7.9 million.
Childcare tutor Tracie Fryer-Kanssen, who helped organise the college event, said:
‘It was a brilliant morning, the highlight being the rum and chocolate cake which went down well with everyone!’
‘The coffee morning helped highlight the great work being carried out by the charity as well as raise funds.’
‘It was also a really good way for our new students to meet and get to know each other outside of class. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the morning.’
