Hundreds raised from Rydal Penrhos' BBC Children in Need Day
21st November 2017

Staff and pupils came dressed in their finest bedtime attire as part of Rydal Penrhos’ contribution to a nationwide fundraising drive.

The school held its One Big Sleepover in aid of BBC Children in Need, with a host of activities held throughout the day on Friday, November 17.

Pupils were given the chance to come to school in their pyjamas or own clothing for a donation, and there was also a Cookies, Donuts and Cake Sale during break which drew a huge crowd.

Brave staff members also took part in a special makeover which produced some frightening sights during lunch, and Assistant Head of Middle School Paul Sanders’ much-loved beard was shaved off by Sam Randall after the Charity Committee managed to raise their £500 target.

Preparatory School pupils also came to school in their onesies and pyjamas as part of the event, with Emily Cashell taking over Rydal Penrhos’ Instagram and Snapchat accounts to document the festivities.

Head of Sixth Form Peter Lavery, said: “Our BBC Children in Need Day was down to the fantastic work from our Charity Committee, which is an entirely pupil-run committee.

“They demonstrated great leadership in both the lead-up to the charity day and during the various events, and they each of them are to be congratulated on raising a considerable amount for a hugely worthwhile cause.”
