Windmill Primary School. Macmillan Coffee Morning.
Lost my notes, so all this is from memory, oh dear!
Was a non-uniform day for the children. Because of this, parents contributed 50p per child to the Macmillan funds. Thanks Julie for giving me extra information on the event.
Now I’m taking advantage of having a coffee and a scone, in aid of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning as defined in the Guinness Book of Records.
This was to be the first one for me to visit today, and I ended up going to three in four days.
I met the teacher who planted the bulbs and shrubs as part of Belle Isle in Bloom last year and looking forward to doing the same this year.
Saw the Headteacher, Sally Sumpner, remember her when I cleaned the school carpets, must be 10 or 12 years ago.
I was going to buy a cake that was on offer to put into the next coffee morning at BITMO GATE. At £3 a bargain, but was too slow and a lady beat me to it. Lol.
Later a small boy pushed a trolley of cakes and buns into classrooms, followed by a teacher or mum.
Bet they enjoyed eating them.
An amazing £454.00 was raised by the school for MacMillan Nurses on the day.
BITMO GATE MacMillan Coffee Morning
Already a few people turning up about 20 minutes before start. Lovely spread of food, cakes and buns.
We helped ourselves to tea and coffee from the Kitchen and of course putting money in Macmillan money box.
John as always there playing acoustic guitar. Just loud enough has background music so everyone could talk.
He is to play Cavatina, just for me when he gets his music.
John has already played some Shadows hits on another event. Thank you John.
Quote from Belle Isle TMO.
MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who helped donated and baked! Special thanks to Bev Walker for running the ‘Spot the Double Shot’ game, which Marcus from the Hunslet Club won!

Quote from Ken, The MacMillan Nurses where involved in my Dad’s and Mum’s care in their last few months of their life, so I’m aware they do a fantastic job , and not a lot of people would do that.
The last of my coffee mornings was at the Police Open Day on Sunday. Another piece of cake and a coffee. I will be getting fat.
