Pool Academy eats cake for charity

Cakes of all shapes, sizes and flavours were on offer at Pool Academy to help raise cash for charity.

The admin team at the school had been baking up a treat after taking part in the MacMillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

The school support the event each year to help raise much-needed cash for the charity.

This year the coffee morning was led by Steph York, PA to Leadership Team at Pool Academy.

She said it was lovely to see people volunteering to make cakes for the occasion. Lemon Drizzle cake, Crispie cakes, Apricot Flapjacks, Victoria Sponges, cookies and more were on offer throughout the day. Staff were also invited to take part in a competition to guess the height of a tower cake.

Gemma Toy, Pool Academy Accounts, said: “The cakes were all very yummy and the Lemon Drizzle was fantastic. It is great that the school is able to support the charity by joining in with the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.”

Mrs York said: “We like to take part in the Macmillan Cancer Support’s World Biggest Coffee Morning event every year.

“Members of staff bring and buy cakes and we hope to raise more money this year than we have before.

“Staff at Pool Academy like to support such an important charity.

“We are still counting up how much money we have raised over the day but I know that everyone has enjoyed the cake.”

Miss Meakin, Pool Academy Principal, said: “It was lovely to see the admin team work together to help raise money for such an important charity.

“There were so many tasty looking cakes to choose from.

“Macmillan Cancer Support charity offers people who have been diagnosed with the disease vital support and we hope the money we raised today will go towards helping it to continue the good work.”

This year £164.36 has been raised so far.
