Group arrange Strawberry Fayre in aid of India trip next year

A group of Rydal Penrhos pupils have arranged a special event to raise funds for a charity mission next year.

Will Stewart, Abhishek Bathula and Edward Patrick are the masterminds behind the upcoming Strawberry Fayre, which will be held on Saturday, July 8 at Coediog Farm in Colwyn Heights.

There will be a host of activities to enjoy throughout the event, with all proceeds going towards Rydal Penrhos’ trip to India next year.

There will be afternoon tea available, in addition to farm-themed games for all the family with stunning views of Snowdonia in the background.

Tickets are priced at £5 and this entitles you to tea and scones, while children go free and juice and biscuits will be available for them to enjoy.

The expedition starts by visiting Amritsar’s Golden Temple, and will later visit the spectacular Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Based in the foothills of the beautiful Indian Himalayas, the group also plan to have a special audience with The Dalai Lama to learn about respect for all religions.

In addition pupils and staff will also take part in unique workshops with experts at international development agencies, to learn about: Sustainable Development, Fair Trade, and Environmental Protection throughout the Himalayas.

The team will then work on a well-planned poverty-reduction project with a UK charity, where we will assist in the building of a new children’s hostel, so mountain children can attend school for the first time in their lives.

They are set to finish the expedition by visiting Buddhist monasteries, to learn from renowned lamas how to practice positive mindfulness in our lives. The expedition will give all participants a unique opportunity to learn about leadership, teamwork, and self-reliance: crucial life-skills.
