The Thomas Gainsborough School took part in the ‘Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning’ by baking cakes to sell to support the charity.

The day was a success with funds of just under £500 raised - the charity fundraiser is a school favourite.

Amie Butcher, deputy headteacher at Thomas Gainsborough School, said: “Fundraising and supporting local and national charities is a big part of our school life, teaching our students of all ages the importance of helping those in need.

“We would like to thank everyone who supported this year’s Macmillan coffee morning – it was another great success.
