This Morning team Manchester had the pleasure of attending Hodge Clough Infant Schools Macmillan coffee Morning. For the event Amanda Stothard had baked some beautiful cupcakes decorated with blue and orange butter cream to represent New Directions company colours. Hodge Clough Infant School were delighted with New Direction’s donation to the cake sale.
Lauren Cassidy, Recruitment Consultant and Stuart Ash, Business Development Officer for New Directions Education were welcomed with open arms into the school, and attendance at the event peaked at around 250 pupils and parents. The whole community had pulled together a great cause. All the pupils at the school had made some sort of contribution to cake table, every variety of cake imaginable Bake well tarts, crispy cakes, fruit loaf, and chocolate sponges galore. Lauren Cassidy commented ‘Mr Kipling himself would have been proud’.
Last year at the annual Hodge Clough Macmillan Coffee morning, the School managed to raise an extremely impressive £350.00. This year with the huge turn out the tally is expected to match or smash last years total, but money aside Lauren continued ‘this is all for a heart warming cause and seeing the community spirit fill the walls of Hodge Clough Infants School was brilliant. Everyone knows someone who has been touched by Cancer, so dig deep in your pockets and raise a mug for all the hard-working doctors, nurses, volunteers and hospitals staff who support and help fight Cancer. But most of all to everyone who is battling cancer…we salute you keep fighting to kick cancers butt’.
It was good to see all members of our community, pupils, staff and parents, grandparents getting involved in helping raise money whilst taking the opportunity to meet up and chat with each other whilst partaking in a cup of coffee and cake. An enjoyable time was had by all.
