The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event, where the charity asks people across the UK to hold a coffee morning and raise money for people living with cancer. The event is central to the charity's fundraising programme, raising a staggering total of over £200m since its inception, with nearly £27 million raised in 2018. This year's Parents' Association Macmillan Coffee Morning took place in Whitfield House, the school’s boarding house, on 27 September and £826 was raised for the charity through generous donations and a raffle.
Around 70 parents and staff took advantage of the opportunity to enjoy coffee and home-baked cakes in the relaxed environment of the Boarding House kitchen, recreation room and library. Chair of the PA, Mrs Tori Denman, remarked, "We were lucky enough to have been given a very warm welcome by Boarding Housemaster, Mr Glitherow, and his team, who bravely let us take over the ground floor of the Boarding House for the morning. This was a first visit for many parents and we all appreciated the homely surroundings and comfy sofas! The PA committee is hugely grateful to all the wonderfully talented bakers and the extremely generous and, happily, hungry attendees who enabled us to donate a significant sum to this extremely worthwhile cause."
