VISITORS to a high school were greeted with a hot brew and a slice of cake as young people took part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

Pupils at Hazel Wood High School in Bury served up treats in support of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The school was one of many organisations in the town taking part in the event to raise funds for the charity.

And parents steamed into the Hazel Wood High School escaping the bad weather to enjoy a coffee break organised by Year 10 pupils.

Year Seven pupils were invited to join the visitors.

Some of the cakes on sale were baked by the young chefs especially to raise money for the cancer support charity.

According to staff and pupils the school hall was the place to be last Friday.

Damian Lansdale, deputy headteacher, said: “Year 10 volunteers were a real credit to the school, ensuring that the event ran smoothly.

“Members of the community attended, along with excited Year 7 pupils, and enjoyed refreshments whilst raising money for a very worthy cause.”

The school raised £140.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer.

Last year alone the event raised over £27 million and is hoped as much can be raised this year.
