Image of KGJS 'raise a mug' for Macmillan Cancer Support

Each year, Kirkham Grammar Junior, Infant and Pre-School support the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Today, Kirkham Grammar Junior, Infant and Pre-School staff took part in the #raiseamug virtual coffee morning for all who are affected by cancer. We invited our parents to join us in raising a mug throughout the day and collected donations at each entrance to school.

KGJS J1 pupil, Ralph’s mummy, Rebecca wanted to share what a poignant occasion this is for both her and her mum.

“We attended this event at KGJS this time last year, knowing Mum had not long been diagnosed with cancer and no idea what her daunting journey would entail. Macmillan was such an amazing charity, supporting both her and us all as a family. Here she is today, a year later, cancer free and living for each day! The support that these events give all cancer patients, no matter where they are on their journey, is invaluable. This event could so easily have been brushed under the carpet, especially with everything going on, but as usual the school grab whatever situation they are faced with and run with it! Every penny given will make such a huge difference. Thank you for organising this event. I know how amazing the KGJS family are in raising lots of money, as they always do.”

Thank you to everyone for your support in raising much needed funds for this very worthwhile cause.
