Rydal Penrhos hold charity day in aid of Conwy children's hospice
7th December 2015

Pupils and staff at a Colwyn Bay school organised a charity day in aid of a Conwy children’s hospice.

Rydal Penrhos held their Ty Gobaith Day on Friday, November 27, where pupils dressed up in casual clothes or anything beginning with T or G for a small donation.

There were a host of activities throughout the day, including a pizza sale during morning break which Chicago Pizzas generously donated towards.

In addition there was also a special Office Olympics event, where teams took part in a series of tasks to win a special prize.

 Hundreds of pounds were raised from the charity day, with all proceeds going to Ty Gobaith.

Head boy Shaswath Ganapathi, a member of the Rydal Penrhos Charity Committee, said: “We would like to offer our thanks to Chicago Pizzas for their generosity, and for everyone else who took part in making our Ty Gobaith Charity Day a success.

“We are doing as much as we can to raise much needed funds for the children’s hospice, and we will also be holding our Christmas Market on December 11 which will also see proceeds go to Ty Gobaith.

“Everyone made a brilliant effort with their fancy dress and it was great to see both pupils and staff at Rydal Penrhos do what they can to contribute to what the committee believes is an essential and very worthy cause.”

Ty Gobaith Children’s Hospice provide care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families from Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales.

A range of services are offered, including respite and end-of-life care at the hospices and/or within the family home, and support such as counselling, advocacy and the promotion of children, young people’s and carers’ rights.

Bereavement support is also offered to all children, young people, family members and others involved with the family.
