A "World's Biggest" Thank You!

A very personal blogpost from me, on behalf of all the pupils and staff at Oakwood...

This morning we tried something a little bit daunting - Oakwood's Biggest Ever Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Support...

We've done this very successfully three times before, (see how we did in 2009 and in 2012), but this morning was the first time we have done it as a primary school.

This meant:

  • more tea, coffee, milk and cups than ever before
  • more sugar lumps than ever before
  • more squash than ever before
  • more chairs and tables than ever before (and even then we didn't have enough!)
and, of course...
  • more cakes than ever before!

It was a really good job that everyone was prepared... children, teachers and especially all the support staff and volunteers who helped set up, because we had...
  • more visitors than ever before!
Every penny donated this morning will be paid into Macmillan's account this weekend so they can continue to the excellent work to support individuals and families affected by cancer.

The good news is that we raised...
  • more money than every before!
At 2.30pm on Friday afternoon, we tipped over the £1000 mark! (And still a few more pennies arriving!)

Thank you so much if you came along, helped make cakes or supported in some other way. 

I could not be more proud of the Oakwood community!
Mr Taylor
