Hundreds raised from Rydal Penrhos' RNLI bag packing initiative
3rd February 2017

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 28, 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.

There was even an appearance from Headmaster Simon Smith, who helped with the afternoon session of the event.

Thanks to the hard work of both pupils and staff, a total of £859.16 was raised in total for their efforts.

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.

“Our pupils and staff gave up their own time to help a very worthy cause, and we even had our new Headmaster at the bag packing, who continues to lead by example in the few short weeks he has been with us.

“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.”
