Grŵp Llandrillo Menai Supports Children in Need

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. Hundreds and hundreds of pounds have been raised, with more coming in by the hour!

A variety of activities were arranged by staff and students: a series of cake sales, face painting, Pudsey badge sales, guess the weight of the cake competitions, all alongside students wearing pyjamas and fancy dress costumes to college, for a donation to Pudsey.

Some of the highlights included…

Level 1 Beauty Therapy students at the Rhos-on-Sea campus baked and sold over 100 cupcakes to students and staff, whilst their classmates offered a variety of Pudsey-themed face painting designs.

Not to be outdone, their peers at the Rhyl campus also took part in a range of fundraising initiatives, including offering files and polishes and hand and arm massages, together with organising ‘guess the weight of the cake’ and ‘guess the number of sweets in a jar’ competitions…and a raffle.

Over at the Llangefni campus, students from the Independent Living Skills department organised a bake-off and bake sale, bingo and karaoke, and a wellington boot-throwing competition!

Back at the Rhos-on-Sea campus, the Level 1 Health, Social and Childcare students were in the main reception persuading staff and students to have a go at a range of competitions, including ‘guess the name of the bear’.

Staff from the Horizons’ Deli sold cupcakes for £1, all lovingly-baked in-house by Dylan and Dan, with all proceeds going to Children in Need.

The Childcare students at the Pwllheli campus baked a huge range of Pudsey-themed cakes and biscuits, which they sold to eager staff and students.
