Rydal Penrhos came together to raise funds for a national cause during the school’s annual Comic Relief fundraising day.
We are enormously proud of our charitable work at Rydal Penrhos. This is something that forms a core component behind our ethos and is a collective effort from pupils, parents, staff, alumni and almost everyone associated with the school.
One of the most prominent dates on the fundraising calendar took place on Friday 18 March, with the school arranging a series of activities in support of the BBC’s nationwide Comic Relief appeal, which has raised £42.79 million to date for those less fortunate.
It was a hive of activity at the Prep during the morning, with pupils coming in their finest red attire and participating in many activities on the school playground to further boost the total raised.
This included welly throwing, jigsaw making, a penalty shootout and much more for pupils to enjoy under the supervision of staff, who did a marvellous job of organising the event.
Hundreds of pounds were raised from the occasion, will have been sent to the Comic Relief fund. This is the latest in a series of outstanding efforts from the Rydal Penrhos community during the academic year so far, with things going back to a much more normal feel thanks to relaxed COVID-19 restrictions implemented by the Welsh Government.
The nationwide appeal is still open, so if you were hoping to donate but haven’t yet got round to it, you can do so by visiting the official Comic Relief website or by texting the word “YES” to 70210 to donate £10.
On behalf of everyone at Rydal Penrhos, we would like to thank everyone who contributed to our Comic Relief fundraising Day. We cannot put into words how grateful we are for your continued support.
