CHILDREN who raised more than £800 for cancer sufferers were rewarded with a visit from the Mayor.

Councillor Alan Richards went to Emerson Valley School on Friday, September 30 as part of its ‘The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ event.

Organised by the school’s ‘Let’s Get Cooking’ team, the event saw students pay £1 to wear trademark MacMillan Cancer Support green t-shirts.

They then served coffee and cake to friends and family, who donated money to the cause in return.

In all the event raised £822 for MacMillan Cancer Research. The school is still accepting donations.

A spokesman for the school said: “We would like to say thank you to everyone who came out and donated money to the event in support of such a great cause.”
