A selfless Preparatory School pupil lent her support to a major fundraising event for a regional Hospice earlier this month.
Robyn Borg Barthet, a Year 4 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, joined a large number of young and old from the region at the annual St David’s Hospice Colour Run, which took place along Llandudno’s West shore on Saturday, September 9.
The eight-year-old managed to successfully complete the five-kilometre course and raise funds for the Hospice in the process, and she received a medal and a pair of “funky sunglasses” acknowledging her efforts.
Robyn is a new arrival at Rydal Penrhos having officially joined earlier this month and has already shown she is going to be a huge contributor throughout all areas of Prep School life.
She also received her medal and a generous round of applause from Prep School Head Alison Hind at Rydal Penrhos’ weekly Celebration Assembly on Friday, Septmber 14.
More than 350 competitors braved the rain to attend the fourth annual event, which is one of the most prominent fundraising occasions that St David’s Hospice put on throughout the year.
Andrew Everley, Community and Events Fundraising Manager at St David’s Hospice, said: “Once again, the Colour Run has proved to be a firm favourite amongst our supporters.
"It was a great success with people of all ages taking part and some fantastic fancy dress.
"Thank you to everyone who took part, the volunteers who helped out on the day and to Bespoke Fitness and Events for marshalling the route."
