Macmillan Coffee Event – Friday 28th September 2018 – purple and green themed non uniform day
Thorn Grove Macmillan Coffee Event
Dear Parents and Carers,
On Friday 28th September 2018, Thorn Grove will be participating in the World’s Biggest Macmillan Coffee Event. This annual event is an important fundraiser for the Macmillan Cancer Support organisation. Cancer affects the lives of thousands of families and communities worldwide and the funds raised at this event enable Macmillan to help people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.
Our afternoon coffee event will take place on Friday 28th September at 3:30pm in our school canteen where a selection of tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits will be served. Monetary donations for Macmillan cancer support will be collected throughout the event. To celebrate the community spirit of the occasion, children and staff are invited to spend the school day in a suggested purple and green Macmillan themed non-uniform – this could range from anything as small as purple and green socks or accessories to a full-blown purple and green outfit! Be creative!
Any donations of cakes and biscuits (these do not need to be home baked) would be greatly appreciated. Please bring them in to school on the morning of 28th September. We hope to see everybody there to help raise funds for what I’m sure you will agree is a very worthwhile cause.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss G Bennett
