McMillan Coffee Morning

Following on from the great success of the BODA Bake-off [and a short break from all the sweet treats!] the staff took part for the second year running in The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. This is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event and once again staff pulled out all the stops to produce a fantastic spread for our morning break.
We raised a fabulous £281.65, over £40 more than last year, and added to the £140 already raised for Macmillan as part of the BODA Bake-off we have been able to donate £421.65 to this very worthwhile charity.

Bridge of Don Academy staff raise £280 for charity with Bake Off

Over the last 4 weeks 12 staff members have been competing in the Great BODA Bake Off 2019 to raise money for 2 charities; Macmillan Cancer Support & The MS Trust.  Bakers were pitted against each other in round 1 and had to bake based on a theme including scones, shortbread, cupcakes and chocolate.  Staff voted and donated to both charities before the winners from each round went through to a semi-final.  Following victories in their respective Semi-finals Miss Mustard (PE), Miss Crawford (Art) and Mrs Forbes (English) went head to head on Thursday in the final with their amazing “showstopper” cakes.

Following all the fantastic efforts Miss Crawford was crowned BODA Bake Off Champion for 2019 but more importantly £280 was raised which will be split equally between Macmillan and the MS Trust.

Support the 100 Club

I have been asked to promote the 100 club, run by the parent council, to all parents and carers.  I am delighted to do this because so many young people have benefitted from the resources it is used to buy.  Please read the letter in the link below for further information and instructions on how to join this easy fund raising scheme.  The more people there are in the club the more money is raised and the bigger the prize pot.  The parent council invites bids from departments and make decisions based on the number of pupils likely to benefit from the resource and on the potential impact on learning and teaching.
