31st January 2018

Generous pupils at Rydal Penrhos took part in a special fundraising initiative in aid of a national maritime charity.

A large number of volunteers from the school participated in their annual bag packing fundraising drive at Morrisons, Colwyn Bay on Saturday, January 27, with all proceeds going towards the RNLI.

Staff and pupils took separate shifts during the day-long event, where they aided customers with their groceries in exchange for a small donation.

Thanks to the hard work of both pupils and staff, a total of £820.28 was raised for their efforts.

Philippa Thomas, Luisa Berto, Christian Cheesley, Damisola Animashaun, Theo Bryant, Maksym Hrymych, Nils Memmi-Bonstrom, Aydan Garrod, Will Crumb, Jonas Lucas-Nuelle, Jule Mayer, Malina Keil, Mayowale Adekeye, Prompt Utenpattanun, Marc Mueller, Alex Sorokin, Augustas Skierus, Bohdan Diedov and Alexia Radu were the pupils that gave up their time to take part in the charity Bag Packing.

Deputy head Tim Cashell, said: “We are very proud of our association with the RNLI, who provide a superb and critical service along our coastlines.

“I would like to thank all those who donated to our fundraising drive, which was one again a huge success and something those involved can be very proud of.

“This is just one of many fundraising initiatives we put on every year for the RNLI, which raise a considerable amount for what we consider to be a very worthy cause.
