On Macmillan Cancer Support’s well-known World’s Biggest Coffee Morning (24 September), the caring learners set out their stall of delights with the aim of raising as much money as possible for the UK charity.

With a variety of home-baked cookies, cupcakes and brownies, as well as some ready-made shop produce, the group, who are all studying on the Advanced Extended Diploma and the Intermediate Certificate in Health and Social Care, raised a total of £135.91 through their sweet sales and online funding page.

Health and social care teacher Martin Cook said: “Health and social care students are given many opportunities to organise fundraising events throughout the year. This better prepares them for employment and improves their university prospects.

“Charity support projects allow students to develop their leadership skills, marketing and communication while also benefiting the local and wider communities. They worked particularly well on the Macmillan Cancer Support project – I’m very proud."
