Prep School charity events raise thousands for charity
13th January 2016

Pupils and staff at a Colwyn Bay Preparatory School have been praised for their charity efforts over the year.

A series of events took place at Rydal Penrhos at various times throughout the term, which has raised more than £1,600 for worthy causes in the region and beyond.

The recent Secret Room event saw staff and parents dress up as elves and wrap Christmas gifts for a small donation, which raised a total of £670 which will go towards Rydal Penrhos’ ongoing charity work with the Rwamahano Primary School in Uganda.

Colourful costumes were the theme for this year’s Prep School Children in Need event, which raised £338 for the national charity, while a Onesie and Tutu Day in aid of Diabetes UK raised £300.

In addition £304 was collected for Jeans for Genes, and a large number of harvest gifts were donated to Action Children.

Headmaster Roger McDuff, said: “It has been another wonderful few months of fundraising at the Prep School and I have been struck by just how generous the Rydal Penrhos community is, both with time and money.

“A tremendous amount of hard work goes into planning these events and I would like to thank everybody who contributed in raising a considerable amount for what we consider to be very worthy causes.

“I am confident that this success will continue next year as there are already a number of exciting things planned in the name of charity.”
