A selfless Rydal Penrhos pupil is lending his support to an upcoming fundraising challenge in aid of a Colwyn Bay community project.
Helping out in the community is something that forms a big part of life at Rydal Penrhos. The school holds a large number of fundraising days throughout the academic year, with schemes such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award and Activity Week focusing on helping out throughout Colwyn Bay and the wider Conwy region.
Our pupils also do their utmost to help worthy causes across the community and beyond. Many of them partake in fundraising initiatives both individually and with specific groups that they’re involved in away from school, which is a testament to their selfless nature and willingness to help others.
Noah Lewis, who will be entering Year 10 in September, will be lending his support to an upcoming charity challenge on Saturday 31 July along with his sister Ruby.
The pair will join two other volunteers from the Kind Bay Initiative in trekking up Mount Snowdon carrying a stretcher weighing 80 kilograms. This is to symbolise carrying an average body and the weight mental health issues can have on someone’s life.
This is not the first time that Noah has assisted with the KBI, which is a homeless charity that was set up with a view to tackling isolation and poor mental health by bringing people together and providing them with food, clothes, entertainment, and a listening ear.
As part of his involvement with the KBI, Noah offered to put his culinary skills to good use by cooking several times outside of school hours, which has received some impressive feedback from those receiving the meals.
His chicken curry was described as “one of the best meals they’d ever had at KBI”, with the charity remaining steadfast in their commitment to providing those in need with a vital service over the last year despite the obvious complications surrounding COVID-19.
We would like to wish Noah, Ruby and everyone doing the challenge the very best of luck. Anyone wishing to donate to their cause can do so here.
