Prep School Council hold ‘Fun Fifties Day’ for BBC Children in Need
November 18, 2019

A Preparatory School leadership group received significant praise for their exceptional commitment to supporting a nationwide charity event.

As part of Rydal Penrhos’ fundraising activities for BBC Children in Need on Friday, November 15, the Prep School Council devised some exciting games for all year groups to participate in during a ‘Fun Fifties Day’.

There were a host of games situated in the Library, which ranged from a Pudsey Treasure Hunt to Beanbag throwing, and each pupil was able to take part for a 50 pence donation.

After donations were collected, the event raised a total of £365 for the nationwide campaign.

This represents a significant achievement for the group, who planned each phase of the process themselves and conducted themselves superbly throughout.

Prep School Head Lucy Davies, said: “Our School Council deserve all the credit in the world for the planning and implementation of Fun Fifties Day, which proved to be a huge hit with everyone taking part.

“They were a credit to themselves and our wonderful Prep School here at Rydal Penrhos, and each one of them can look back on this achievement for such a brilliant cause with a great sense of pride and accomplishment.”

Children in Need is the BBC’s official UK charity and raises money for disadvantaged young people around the country, such as those experiencing poverty, with disabilities, or victims of abuse or neglect.
