Charity Committee to hold fundraising day in aid of Sport Relief

Rydal Penrhos will be lending its support to a nationwide fundraising initiative this week.

The school’s Sixth Form Charity Committee has arranged a special charity day in aid of Sport Relief, which is taking place across the country on Friday, March 23.

Staff and pupils across all year groups are being invited to come to school dressed in a sports outfit for the day for a donation, and they are also permitted to come in their own clothes should they wish.

Football, rugby or cricket tops should be worn with either leggings or tracksuit bottoms, with mixing and matching costing £2.

Anyone wearing a sports outfit is required to bring a £2 donation to the cause, with those with school sports uniform on required to donate £1.

There will also be a cake sale at break time, with lots of tasty treats on offer to raise additional funds on the day.

Since the last biennial event, money raised has treated more than 900,000 people across Africa with anti-malarial drugs and helped more than 3.4 million people across the continent through maternal, neonatal and child health funding.

In addition, Sport Relief has also helped more than 50,000 people, in the UK, living with a mental health problem.
