Charity committee seek donations ahead of first ever Christmas Market
21st October 2015

The charity committee at a Colwyn Bay school is seeking donations ahead of this year’s Christmas Market.

The group of pupils at Rydal Penrhos have been working hard to plan the event, which is the first of its kind at the school.

It will take place on Friday, December 11 from 3.30pm until 6pm, and all proceeds from the event go to Ty Gobaith Children’s Hospice in Conwy.

There will be a host of stalls available throughout the event, giving market-goers the perfect chance to buy some last minute Christmas gifts for friends and family.

Head Boy and committee member Shaswath Ganapathi, said: “We are currently working very hard to get as many people and businesses as possible involved in the Christmas Market, so we can raise a great deal of money for a fantastic cause.”

In addition to the many stalls available, people attending can enter the Christmas spirit by taking part in a charity raffle and auction, which is set to offer a host of fantastic prizes to win.

There will also be festive music played throughout the event from the staff and jazz bands at the school.

Head Girl Hannah Cashell, added: “Anything anyone could spare would be greatly received, and we hope that this will be an event that people will support and enjoy.”

Ty Gobaith provides care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families from Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales.

A range of services are offered, including respite and end-of-life care at the hospice and/or within the family home, and support such as counselling, advocacy and the promotion of children, young people's and carers' rights.

Anyone wishing to donate or for more information should call 01492 530155 or email
