Hundreds raised from FORPS Chocolate Bingo

Hundreds of pounds were raised from a special fundraising event organised by the Friends of Rydal Penrhos.

The group held their annual Chocolate Bingo event on Monday, April 3 at the school’s Ferguson Centre, and the initiative was once again hailed as a tremendous success by organisers.

A total of £421 was raised from the event, which will be distributed to a number of projects at Rydal Penrhos.

This is the latest in a long line of fundraising initiatives by FORPS, who have raised thousands for the school since their inception.

Dozens of people attended the event, including staff and pupils from both the Senior and Prep schools.

They spent the evening trying to win chocolate-themed prizes which included a huge hamper of Easter treats.

In addition to the bingo, there was also a collection set up, which resulted in a large number of Easter eggs being donated to global charity Action for Children.

Alumni and Development director Sarah Ritchie, said: “It was another wonderful event organised by the FORPS committee and everyone at Rydal Penrhos is extremely grateful for their efforts.

“They do so much good for the school in terms of fundraising, which is something that has benefitted a wide range of areas over the years.

“Their selfless gesture also resulted in a number of chocolate eggs going towards Action for Children, who provide a vital service to those less fortunate, so a huge well done must go to all involved.”
