Cllr Alex Horwood assisting Catriona Macleod with the raffle
Dunottar Girls' School raise £400 to help people affected by cancer at their World's Biggest Coffee Morning.
Deputy Mayor Cllr Alex Horwood and his wife Rukshana attended a coffee and cake morning, hosted by Dunottar Girls’ School in Reigate on Friday, September 28th. The coffee morning, which included a raffle, was to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support.
Cllr Alex Horwood said: 'The morning went particularly well and it’s fantastic that today is the world’s biggest coffee morning. It’s a very worthwhile cause and is of particular interest to me. Personally speaking, my father died of cancer more than four years ago; Macmillan were there when we needed them. They help 20, 000 people who suffer with cancer a year.'
In total, Dunottar school raised £400.
Catriona Macleod, Head of the Dunottar Junior School and organiser of the event, said: 'It was a very successful morning. We are very pleased that Cllr Alex Horwood and Rukshana could attend.'
Dunottar is an independent day school for girls aged 4 – 18.
