For the past few years, Outwood Academy Portland has raised money by selling cakes to the students and staff at break and lunch. I am writing to outline the two ways that you can support this charity alongside us this year.
Following last year’s hugely successful fundraising, on Friday 28th September we will once again be opening our doors to invite parents, carers and grandparents to join us for the Macmillan BIG Coffee Morning, so that even more money can be raised for this worthy cause.
The event will begin with an assembly. We hope this will give you an opportunity to see the type of assembly that is delivered to students on a weekly basis. The coffee morning will follow directly after the assembly. There will also be a bake sale for students at the same time in the academy dining hall.
If you are unable to attend on the 28th September you can still help us fundraise as we will, of course, need cakes to sell! If you are a dab hand at baking, we would be delighted if you would make a cake (or cakes) for the event. Please could we ask that you bring or send in your baking on Thursday 27th or by 9am on Friday 28th September.
If you are able to attend please can you arrive at the academy between 10.10am and 10.20am so that you can be seated before the students join us in the hall. There will be a member of staff waiting to greet you at the Bridge (Sparken Hill entrance). The Big Coffee Morning will finish at 11.45am.
We look forward to seeing you on Friday 28th September.
