More than £1,000 raised from Children in Need Day 2021
November 22, 2021

Rydal Penrhos raised hundreds of pounds from their annual BBC Children in Need Day thanks to a fantastic effort from the school community.

Rydal Penrhos pulled together to raise funds for an extremely worthy cause during the annual BBC Children in Need fundraising day on Friday 19 November. Staff and pupils devised an action-packed schedule for the occasion, which drew a huge response from the entire school community and raised a four-figure sum in the process.

Years 7-13 were given the option of coming in their own clothes or dressing to a Superhero theme for a small donation, which saw everything from Captain America, Superman and Zorro come into school.

Plenty of tasty treats were on offer at a charity cake sale during Rydal Penrhos’ morning break, with other activities held during lunch to raise further funds for the nationwide campaign to provide assistance to those less fortunate.

Things were equally as busy at the Prep site, with pupils dressing in Pudsey-themed attire and the entire Pre-School-Year 6 community taking part in a day-long Dance-a-Thon that saw a sensational collective effort from all involved.

A total of £1,085 has been raised from the school’s JustGiving page online, with more set to come in over the next few days to boost the total further.

Our Charity Committee and Prep site did an incredible job of organising this year’s BBC Children in Need Day, and it was great to see the entire Rydal Penrhos community enthusiastically supporting every activity for a very worthy cause.

They can be enormously proud of the amount raised and everyone at Rydal Penrhos would like to thank everyone that donated.

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.

More than £39 million was raised from the Children in Need television appeal this year.
