A Rydal Penrhos pupil performed at Ty Gobaith’s virtual fundraiser, which raised £30,000.
Tegid Goodman-Jones, who is a Year 13 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, lent his support to the Conwy children’s hospice, who embraced the “new normal” on Saturday 5 December for their “Bringing the Big Night Out, In!” extravaganza that was live-streamed on Ty Gobaith’s YouTube channel.
There were a host of individual performances from people including Harry and Alayah – who were finalists in The Greatest Dancer – Cor Glanaethwy from Britain’s Got Talent and Elin Fflur.
As part of the evening, Ty Gobaith also held an online auction, and they managed to raise £15,000 from the event that was matched by a donor – bringing the total to an incredible £30,000.
Tegid’s contribution was another notable highlight, with the pupil achieving an exceptional amount regionally and nationally during an outstanding singing career to date.
His success has included the Urdd National Eisteddfod, the Llangollen International Eisteddfod and he was also a special guest at the Daily Post Schools Awards in 2019.
The Sixth Former has also earned recognition in a sporting environment during his time at the school, with Tegid selected to North Wales youth hockey squads and also helping Rydal Penrhos win national titles at U16 and U18 levels.
Rydal Penrhos has raised thousands for Ty Gobaith over the years, with the annual Christmas Market providing much-needed funds for the extremely worthy cause.
Although this event was unable to take place this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, the school held an online fundraiser for the hospice for anyone wishing to make donations online during a difficult time for everyone across the country.
Rydal Penrhos is now able to offer private tours to prospective pupils and their families.
