On Friday 26th September we held our annual cake sale and a ‘Tea at the Ritz’ tea party in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. In total the events raised over £1470 for the charity.

The cake sale during morning break and lunchtime was tremendously supported by parents and pupils, who had been busy baking an array of cakes and cookies for the event. The queue for the sale stretched around the courtyard with pupils and staff leaving the sale clutching bags bursting at the seams with goodies!

In the afternoon the new dining hall, Underwood, was adorned with hand-made Macmillan bunting, balloons, linen table cloths and fresh flowers for ‘Tea at the Ritz’. Sixth Formers helped Swallows Hill staff serve parents with sweet and savoury tempting treats, whilst musical members of the school serenaded the event. Many thanks to Mrs Sanders who baked a Macmillan cake which was raffled to raise further donations.

We would like to thank parents, pupils and staff once again for the excellent support at our event to raise money for Macmillan Cancer. Each year we are staggered by the kind donations of produce – and this year we would also like to thank the parents who bought tickets for ‘Tea at the Ritz’. It was a delightful day.
