Young people at the coffee morning

Children’s house raises funds for Macmillan


Well done to all young people, staff and carers at Montgomery Children’s House, which held a successful Macmillan coffee morning at the end of last year. 

The fundraising event, which took place on Friday 20 October, invited colleagues and friends to enjoy tea, coffee, cake and other home-baked treats in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. 

Heather Wright, House Manager, told us more: 

“It was a great success! All our young people played their part on the day, making coffees, taking orders and collecting donations. They also did really well discussing and preparing the event. 

Our young people chose baked goods they wanted to make and were supported to make these by our cook, Audrey. Some carers also made items such as scones and tablet which we sold on the morning. 

Audrey was great in supporting the young people and making fresh scones on the morning, and Nicola and Karen (carers) made tablet and fudge in their own time, which we sold on the day. 

We raised over £120!”

What a fantastic effort! Congratulations to everyone involved in making this event such a ‘sweet’ success.
