Children in Need 2012 Coffee Morning

On Tuesday staff had a coffee morning in the Home Economics Department.  We enjoyed a fabulous range of home baked cakes (which made Great British Bake Off look amateur in comparison) and teas and coffees served by year 10 Home Economics students.

There was also a raffle with some fantastic prizes.  The Coffee Morning raised over £200 for Children in Need and filled us all up for the rest of the day!
