Parkside Federation students Bethan Williams, Macaulay Nicholls, Joshua Watson and Evan Sutcliffe helped launch The Big Cake Break to raise money for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity by serving cake and refreshments to their fellow pupils during the lunch break on Friday (27th April). The group served up cupcakes, flapjacks and Gingerbread Men plus a giant pink cupcake outside the canteen of Coleridge Community College at lunchtime as part of the fundraising campaign.
The new initiative turns a tea or coffee break into a sociable fundraising event to raise vital funds for the Hospice at the same time.
Bethan explains why she decided to organise the event ‘It’s just something nice to do for a hard working and a rewarding Charity in my community and I just wanted to give something back’. The students successfully managed to raise £40.
Community Fundraiser for the Charity, Amy Cuffe says ‘The Big Cake Break is a great way to celebrate the Jubilee Year in traditional style and a fantastic opportunity to invite your colleagues, friends and family together to indulge in some delicious cakes whilst supporting your local Hospice.’
Arthur Rank Hospice offers specialist palliative care to patients and their families in Cambridgeshire living with the effects of life-limiting illness. Working in partnership with the NHS they support over 1000 patients each year; to continue this work the Charity are challenged with raising £1.3m every year and rely heavily on support from the communities of Cambridgeshire to reach this target.
