Southwark College's Supported Learning students organised a cake sale to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, demonstrating their commitment to helping those in need and emphasising their exceptional determination and unity. The event was part of the yearly Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning initiative to support individuals living with cancer.

The students showcased their excellent communication skills by selling a variety of delicious treats, including classic cupcakes, intricately decorated cupcakes, fairy cakes, Victoria sponge, chocolate, and baton berg providing something for everyone. Staff and students from Southwark College visited the cake sale stand in the Atrium to purchase the baked goods and support Macmillan Cancer Support, raising a total of £141.00.

Jane Button, Principal at Southwark College, said: "Through Southwark College's inspiring Macmillan Cancer Support cake sale, our incredible Supported Learning students have showcased entrepreneurial skills. With this initiative, our students highlighted that even the smallest gestures of kindness can create profound change in the lives of those battling cancer. A heartfelt and special thank you to our students and staff for supporting this worthwhile cause and for spreading joy within the College’s community."

Jimmy Coley, Learner Support Worker at Southwark College, said: "The purpose of the day, as heartfelt as it is essential, revolves around creating awareness and raising funds for this wonderful charity. The significance of this event becomes deeply personal when considering the reason behind its organization. My motivation to spearhead this initiative stems from a place of profound loss and unwavering love for a dear family member who lost their battle to breast cancer."

Lyne Sykes, a Community, Engagement and Enterprise Programme student, said: "I enjoyed baking for this sale, and it was incredibly fulfilling to witness how much everyone enjoyed the taste of my cakes. The sale was a testament to the power of College’s community, the kindness of individuals, and the shared goal of making a difference in the lives of those battling cancer."

The students' efforts to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support highlight the importance of supporting individuals living with cancer and the incredible skills students develop as part of their course. For more information about our Supported Learning courses, visit:
