Last week (18th April - 24th April) was Multiple Sclerosis Week and on Friday 23rd April it was national MS Cake Break day. We organised a cake stall in the hall at morning break and lunch time to raise money for the charity - any excuse to eat cakes! The cakes and biscuits were baked and donated by family, friends and teachers, and we also received some cakes from Mannings bakery in Waterfoot and a selection of things including doughnuts, muffins and Scooby Doo buns from Greggs in Burnley. We raised £310, which was absolutely fantastic. We are planning to give the money to the Pendle branch of the MS Society, as we know that they are struggling to raise money and we feel that more people would benefit from the money if it was used locally. We had a brilliant day (in our bright orange t-shirts!!) and we would like to thank all the teachers and pupils who helped in any way, and of course everyone who came and bought cakes because without them we would have nothing! We all had fun and the mess in the hall was minimal which was great because we might be allowed to do it again!!!
