Various fundraising events were in full swing across Grŵp Llandrillo Menai's 12 campuses as groups of students and staff were out and about raising money for Children in Need. Well over £1,000 was raised, with more coming in by the hour!

A variety of activities were arranged by staff and students: the support of BBC Radio Cymru's 'Pawen Lawen' challenge, a series of cake sales, as well as students wearing pyjamas and fancy dress costumes to college, for a donation to Pudsey.

At the Pwllheli campus, It was high-fives all-round as 148 students and staff took part in BBC Radio Cymru's 'Pawen Lawen' challenge for Children in Need. The group formed one long line through the campus and passed on high fives in an effort to help Radio Cymru's Aled Hughes' effort to get 10,000 "Pawen Lawen" high-fives completed throughout the nation.

Their effort was captured on video, and is available on Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor's Facebook and Twitter pages www.twitter.com/meiriondwyfor

At the Rhos-on-Sea campus, the Beauty Therapy department offered a range of treatments to clients, students and staff, including mini manicures and facials. They charged clients £5 to access the range of treatments, which included tea and Pudsey cakes! The students also sold a range of homemade biscuits and cakes in the main reception.

Chef Tom, who works in the Horizons café, lovingly baked a range of delicious homemadecupcakes which were sold for £1 each, whilst Health and Care Level 2 students manned a stall where they organised a 'Guess the Name of the Bear' competition and cake sale.

At the Rhyl campus, the Beauty Therapy students completed a sponsored silence, where they were not even allowed to use their mobile phones for several hours! As their tutor Rachel Beattie explained "this was quite a challenging task as you can imagine".
