College Group Raises £273 For Shelter Cymru

Grŵp Llandrillo Menai has raised an impressive £273 over the past week for its partner charity of the year, Shelter Cymru.

Fundraising activities included ‘Guess the name of the teddy bear’, and cupcakes kindly made and donated by ‘The Bistro’ training restaurant at Coleg Llandrillo’s Rhos-on-Sea campus were sold across Grŵp campuses.

Shelter Cymru provides information, advice and support to help people identify the best options to prevent homelessness, to find and keep a home and to help them take control of their own lives.

Raffles were also held for hampers filled with produce and vouchers donated from local businesses, including Dylan’s Restaurants, Pen Y Bryn pub, Venue Cymru, the Oyster Catcher restaurant, and Foel Farm Park. The hampers also included gift vouchers for departments within the colleges, such as the training hair salons and training restaurants.

Aaron Beacher, Student Enrichment Officer at Grŵp Llandrillo Menai, said,

“We are proud to be supporting Shelter Cymru this year - a charity which provides invaluable support to people who are at risk of becoming homeless”.

“We will continue raising money for the charity throughout the year, and we will be holding the next Charity Event very soon. A big thank you to all of the staff and students who have supported this worthy cause”.
