Macmillan Bake Sale & Coffee morning raises money...and smiles!
If there is one thing we do well here at Ark Academy, it's a bake sale. Our love of all things sweet-tasting ensured the coffee and cake morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support was a great success.
Year 9 Library Leader Parbes organised the morning and said: 'It was my lifelong dream to help people less fortunate than myself and that's why I wanted to do the bake sale and help raise money.'
He did lots of baking for the event, along with fellow student Jordan, and Miss Pitkin, Miss Smyth and Miss Dineen - as you can see from our photographs there was more than enough cake to go around!
Librarian Miss Smyth described it as 'an absolute free for all! We were so busy and had so many cakes – it was the Great Library Bake Off!'
The cakes sold out completely by the end of break so £134 was raised in just one 20 minute break time. Very impressive stuff!
Big thanks to Parbes and of course our lovely librarians for hosting the event.
