Annual Morrisons bag packing event in aid of RNLI to take place this month

Generous pupils at Rydal Penrhos will take part in a special fundraising initiative later this month.

A number of volunteers from the school will be participating in the annual bag packing fundraising drive at Morrisons, Colwyn Bay on Saturday, January 27 in aid of national maritime charity, the RNLI.

Staff and pupils will spend the day helping customers pack their groceries in exchange for a donation, and the event will run from 9am to 4pm.

Thanks to the hard work of both pupils and staff, more than £1,500 has been raised from the last two bag packing initiatives in 2015 and 2016, and this is the latest in a series of fundraising schemes and community involvement from Rydal Penrhos on behalf of the RNLI.

A large crowd descended on St John’s Church over the festive period for the RNLI Carol Service, while staff and pupils also volunteered at the opening of Llandudno’s new £2.6 million lifeboat station late last year.

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.

“It has been an extremely successful fundraising event over the years and I hope that we can carry on this fine tradition at this year’s bag-packing event.”
