MacMillan Cancer Support - 01/10/2018

The fundraising event which took place for MacMillan Cancer Support was organised by Academy Sixth Form students and was supported by School Pastors, Kathleen Sharps and Wyn Moorcroft with aid from Mr. Radford (Site Manager). The event has raised just over £100 so far. MacMillan Cancer Support is one of our chosen charities as part of our whole school charitable focus for this academic year.

The event was held to raise awareness of the excellent care given by MacMillan staff to support those terminally ill or suffering as a result of cancer. 

Mr Anderson, Chaplain at University Church of England Academy said, “Thanks to the generosity of money, time and effort put in for this most worthy cause, we are showing our solidarity for those who provide excellent palliative care for sufferers of cancer and their loved ones. We remember that Jesus taught us to be compassionate to those in need.” 

Sixth Form student, Surahata Jawara explained that, “It is important to educate people to realise that this issue affects so many of us and could impact upon anyone’s life in the future.”
