Comic Relief fundraising total announced by Charity Committee

Hundreds of pounds were raised by Rydal Penrhos’ Charity Committee as part of their efforts towards a nationwide fundraising initiative.

The Sixth Form group arranged a series of activities in support of Comic Relief on Friday, March 15, which was one of many such events put on at the school throughout the academic year.

Staff and pupils were encouraged to wear a fancy dress themed beginning with the letter R or come in their own clothes in exchange for a donation, with a Cake Sale during break selling out of tasty treats within five minutes of opening.

Best dressed awards were given to the most creative costumes such as Head Girl Gowri Pradeep as a raspberry, and Matthew Chan as a Royal Mail worker.

A number of staff members got a soaking during a special lunchtime activity, where pupils threw wet sponges at them to further raise funds for the cause.

Charity Committee co-chair Holly Battersby revealed that a total of £750 was raised from the event, which was added to the £63.5 million donated across the country.

Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “It is safe to say that this year’s Red Nose Fundraising Day will live long in the memory, and I would like to offer my sincerest thanks to the Charity Committee for arranging such a fabulous event once again.

“They have done so much good for regional and national causes throughout the years, and this is a testament to their enthusiasm and passion to make the world a better place.”
