PUPILS at a Thornton school gave a classroom a new lease of life to take part in the world’s biggest coffee morning.

The youngsters from Millfield Science and Performing Arts College broke from their healthy eating tradition and converted one of the classrooms into a cake shop during break and lunch in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Lynda Needham, from the Belvedere Road, Thornton, said: “All the cakes were homemade and kindly donated by students and staff.

“Students waited patiently to buy their treats in aid of such a good cause.”

Mrs Needham added: “We raised a total of £115. It was a great day and everyone enjoyed taking part.”

Thousands of people across the country hosted coffee mornings on Friday .

Around £500,000 has been raised so far this weekend. The first world’s biggest coffee morning was held in 1990, and has since become a popular annual event.
