A Heartwarming Gathering: Mount Stewart School's Macmillan Coffee Morning and Parents Afternoon Tea


The results can be extraordinary when a community comes together to support a meaningful cause. This was evident at Mount Stewart School's recent Macmillan Coffee Morning and Parents Afternoon Tea event, where children and staff donned green attire and baked mouth-watering treats and raised an impressive £1,100 for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. This event was about fundraising and a touching tribute to Rhea, a Year 1 student who courageously battled cancer before passing away last April.

A Sea of Green Support:

On the Friday 29th of September, the school was a vibrant sea of green, as students and staff showed unwavering support for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. The sea of green attire was not just a visual display but a symbol of unity and solidarity with those affected by cancer. It highlighted our commitment to making a difference in the lives of individuals and families who need it most.

Baking and Generosity:

What's a coffee morning and afternoon tea without delectable treats? The Mount Stewart School community did not disappoint. Many dedicated staff and students rolled their sleeves and showcased their baking talents by creating cakes and sweet delights. These homemade creations were not only delicious but also a testament to the generosity of our school community. The spirit of giving was truly heart-warming.

Raising £1,100 for a Worthy Cause:

The highlight of the event was undoubtedly the fundraising success. Through the collective efforts of our students, staff, and parents, we raised a total of £1,100 for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. This remarkable sum will be vital in supporting cancer survivors, offering comfort and care during their challenging journeys.

In Memory of Rhea:

The event held a special place in our hearts as we remembered Rhea, a beloved Year 1 student who battled cancer with immense courage. Rhea's passing last April was a heartbreaking moment for our community. This event was about raising funds and a heartfelt tribute to her memory. She would have been proud to see how her school supported such a worthy cause.
