Noah’s charity climb for international charity
April 22, 2020

A selfless pupil at Rydal Penrhos is using part of his free time in-between online learning sessions to raise money for charity.

Noah Lewis, a Year 8 pupil at the school, has been taking part in a charity climb from the comfort of his own home alongside twin sister Ruby.

They plan to scale the equivalent of Mount Kilimanjaro and will be ascending the stairs of their house 76 times for 28 days.

All proceeds raised will go towards Tearfund, an international charity who are making a concerted effort to support poorer countries during the coronavirus pandemic.

The organisation works in more than 50 countries around the world, with Noah and Ruby raising £255 from their effort to date.

Noah settled in very well at Rydal Penrhos since arriving as a Year 7 pupil, with the youngster particularly thriving in a Performing Arts environment.

He was part of the Dramatic Society case for the outstanding depiction of Les Miserables last year and gave a memorable contribution to the Speech and Drama Comedy night prior to the coronavirus closure.

Senior School head Sally Ann Harding, said: “This is a wonderful thing to do from Noah and his sister Ruby for what is a very worthy cause.

“Noah is a fantastic young man who is a real credit to himself and everyone here at Rydal Penrhos. We wish him the very best of luck and hope he raises as much as possible.”
