Rydal Penrhos thanked for Home-Start Conwy donations
January 18, 2022

Rydal Penrhos received a letter of thanks following a fantastic initiative over the Christmas period to provide gifts to Home-Start Conwy.

We are very proud of our charitable work throughout at Rydal Penrhos, which occurs throughout the academic year across our Pre-School, Prep and Senior sites. This is something that forms a strong foundation of the school’s ethos throughout history and allows the entire community to do their part in making the world around them a better place.

During the Christmas festivities, the school decided to support a very worthwhile local initiative to assist those less fortunate. A collection for the Conwy Home-Start appeal was launched, which is a community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times.

This received a tremendous response from the school community, which saw a significant number of toys and other items brought into school over a number of weeks, which were then distributed to families across the region in time for Christmas.

Sylvia Chadwick, who is Scheme Manager at Home-Start Conwy, wrote a lovely letter of thanks to Rev’d Dr Rob Beamish, the school’s Chaplain, for the generous donations made by Rydal Penrhos just before the festive break.

It read: “I am writing to you to express my sincere thank you for the wonderful collection you did for Home-Start Conwy over Christmas. I just wanted to let you know the gifts and toys were delivered to our families prior to Christmas. Our families were extremely grateful to receive all of the gifts and they were a huge help and surprise to the local families in need.

The Trustees, staff and I are extremely grateful; we cannot thank you enough for your donations and we really appreciate your kindness and support.”

This is the latest fine example of the extraordinary generosity from the Rydal Penrhos family. The school recently raised more than £1,600 from the annual BBC Children in Need Day and there was another outstanding response to the annual Harvest Food Drive in aid of the Conwy Food Bank and the Kind Bay Initiative.
