Macmillan Fundraiser


At Smithills we often have fundraising events for staff to participate in.  We annually hold the Macmillan’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ and we have also started to have a big annual fundraising event chosen for a charity.  This year the charity chosen was Cancer Research UK.  This was in memory of Lynn Burns, our Office Manager who sadly passed away earlier this year. 


The fundraiser was a 1950s themed event consisting of:


- 1950’s music and videos with glitter ball

- Fancy dress 

- Popcorn, Candy floss, balloons, bubbles and retro sweets

- Hotdogs, burgers, pink lemonade ….

- Many baked cakes donated by staff

- 1950s retro themed table decorations

- Large Juke box and Popcorn decorations 


The event was held on 6 th April and organised by Kathryn Worsley and Karen Critchley, Learning Teaching Assistants in Learning Services. There was a themed 1950s pub quiz which saw staff become extremely competitive, winning prizes and was all planned and delivered by Mr Allen.


Over £300 was raised for this fantastic cause. Well done everyone!
