Britain's most successful Winter Paralympian attends cheque presentation
21st June 2018

Britain’s most successful Winter Paralympian was on hand to collect a donation from Rydal Penrhos on behalf of a national sporting charity.

Year 6 pupil and ski captain Telor Jones and Head of Boys’ Games Jamie McLeod took a trip to Llandudno’s dry slop earlier this month, where they presented a cheque to Winter Olympics star and recent MBE recipient Menna Fitzpatrick.

The Prep School managed to raise a total of £400 from a fundraising disco, which was held in aid of Disability Skiing Wales.

Fitzpatrick, a 20-year-old visually impaired downhill skier, won one gold, two silvers and a bronze medal at the 2018 Winter Paralympics in Pyeongchang, and brought her medals along to the presentation for Telor and Mr McLeod to view.

This is the latest in a series of fundraising drives for the organisation put on by Rydal Penrhos in recent years, something that has contributed thousands of pounds to the fantastic cause.

Mr McLeod, said: “It was great to meet such a well-recognised and respected figure within the sport, and on behalf of everyone at Rydal Penrhos I would like to thanks Menna for giving up her time to attend the cheque presentation.

“We are very proud of our association with Disability Skiing Wales, who provide an essential service throughout the country to give opportunities to those less fortunate.”
