Macmillan Coffee Morning


2010 Macmillan Coffee Morning_2 Today we had a Coffee Morning for Macmillan. People started to arrive at half ten when it was supposed to start. Me and Lucy went around with the raffle tickets. All our Mams came but some of the dads didn’t. There was loads of fancies and everybody seemed to have a good time. Nearly everybody near the school came. We had made rubbings for one of the displays to make the coffee morning nice and bright. Me and Lucy drew the raffle after Brydon annouced it and my mum won a cuddly dog and some chocolates. After we tidied up (mostly Jennifer, Margret and Elsie, OOPSIE DAISYS) then we sat back on our chairs in the classroom and counted the money for the raffle. We got £ 143.60 just for the raffle and we got £116.56 in the fundraising tub. We added it up and the total was £260.16.

I have put a slide show at the top of the page.


  1. I really like what you write about. You guys are very lucky because you get to do many cool things. It is really cool that you get to go swimming and have a lot of fun.I really injoyed you class blog.

  2. Great work! Well done on making so much money and also well done on getting your video onto your blog. We are very impressed!

  3. Dear students at Burravoe Primary School,

    Four of your students left messages on our class blog yesterday, what a great surprise! We thought it was neat that your island had the same number of people that ours does and that your school is small too. We have to take a ferry to get to the big shops too!

    We are wondering what grades are in your school? We have kindergarten to grade 7.

    We think your coffee morning sounds like fun. We wanted to watch the slideshow, but it wouldn’t play for us. Mrs. Watson is going to try and fix that. We are wondering what fancies are? We were guessing that they might be treats or maybe even people dressed up fancy.

    We are also wondering what Glow is?

    We found your town on our world map and looked up the time difference. We found out that you are 8 hours ahead of us.

    We can’t wait to learn more about you!

    Mrs. W and the 2/3’s

  4. Well done Burravoe! It’s great to hear that you’ve been raising money for others. Sounded like a fun day too!

  5. Well done everyone, it’s great that you managed to get so many people to come along. How did you manage that? Did you use posters, or just tell people? Or did they just get to hear about the fancies?

    I wondered if you’d like to visit the blogs of some of our small schools here in East Lothian? Our very smallest school is Humbie Primary http://edubuzz.org/blogs/humbie. It’s a rural village school with just one class. There are children from P1 to P5 in it this year. I’m sure they’d love to hear from you.

    Some of our other small schools blogs you might like to visit are:
    Athelstaneford Primary – http://edubuzz.org/blogs/athelstaneford
    Saltoun Primary – http://edubuzz.org/blogs/saltoun
    Innerwick Primary – http://edubuzz.org/blogs/innerwick
    Whitecraig Primary – http://edubuzz.org/blogs/whitecraig

    They’d all be very excited to get a comment from Shetland!

  6. You raised a lot of money, well done! Has the cuddly dog been given a name yet? It certainly sounds as though everyone enjoyed themselves whilst raising all that money. I wonder why Elsie is also called OOPSIE DAISYS?

  7. Well done; I’m so impressed with how much money you managed to raise. Perhaps on Monday you can work out how much per head that works out at. We are lucky to be part of such a generous community.
