Students and staff from Doncaster College have begun their annual fundraising activities by putting on a coffee morning to raise money for charity.

Each academic year, students and staff from the Academy of Commercial Enterprise at the College, adopt a charity and put on an array of fundraising events through out the year. This year’s chosen charity is Macmillan Cancer Support.

They raise thousands of pounds towards their good cause each year and they have made a great start by collecting over £500 from the coffee morning.

The coffee morning was held, as part of the world’s biggest coffee morning, and took place in the College’s Waterfront restaurant and was run by professional cookery Level 2 and Entry 3 Catering students.

Contributions to stalls and activities such as Tombola, Sweets in a jar, Guess the Name and Cakes and Bake, were organised by Catering, Travel and Business students.

Jane Fishwick, Assistant Director, Hospitality, Travel, Business and Accounting at the College said,

‘We chose Macmillan due to the number of lives affected by cancer, we have had two young learners in the past two years as well as lots of family members across the staff and students. Both these students are doing well currently. We feel MacMillan touch the lives of many and have helped cancer patients and their families to deal with the terrible situations both practically and emotionally for as long as they are needed.’

The students’ involvement in charity fundraising helps them develop teamwork and enterprising skills as well as developing their sense of social responsibility.

The coffee morning is Macmillan's biggest fundraising event. They ask people across the UK to hold one and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. In 2012, 115,000 people signed up, raising a record £15 million.
