            THANK YOU –  MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING                 

Thank you so much for your support and the wonderful cakes during our Macmillan coffee morning, today. We had great excitement with the ‘cake raffle’ at the end and we are delighted to have raised over £130.34 to support this very worthwhile Charity, which many of us have special connections to.

A special thank you to Miss Gaston, for approaching local companies for all the cake donations and wonderful prizes



Dear Parent/Carer,

 I am delighted to be able to tell you that on Friday 27th September 2019 Olton Primary will be holding a Coffee Morning in support of The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning at the Junior site between 10.45am – 11.35am.

 Annual coffee mornings across the country have been highly effective in making sure that nobody faces cancer alone and Olton Primary would also like to embrace this wonderful project, welcoming parents and the local community to catch up over a cup of tea, enjoy some scrumptious treats and donate the cost of the cuppa to Macmillan Cancer Research.

 It would be great if you could come along to this wonderful event and even bring along other family and friends to sponsor the cause. The entrance cost, inclusive of tea/ coffee and cake, will be £2 per person. Please feel free to donate more if you can.

 All cake/ cupcakes/ biscuits contributions (homemade or shop bought) and monetary donations are highly appreciated. The funds raised will all be sent to Macmillan.

 We respectfully ask that if cakes or cookies containing nuts that they are labelled clearly, no peanuts please. Any “free from” cakes that are suitable for allergy sufferers are most welcome so everyone can enjoy a treat.

 To find out more about the work of Macmillan Cancer Support, recipe ideas, support or just someone to talk to, call 0808 808 00 00 or visit their website

 In order to plan for the event, please can you indicate on the slip sent home if you are able to attend and if you will be able to donate cakes and cookies. For those of you who are unable to attend and would still like to donate, please send in any donation to school with your child in a sealed envelope, labelled with your child’s name, class name and ‘Macmillan donation’.

 Many thanks for your support and I look forward to enjoying a cuppa with you!

Kind regards
