Y8 Personal And Social Education Charity Work
Firstly, year 8 at Ysgol Rhiwabon have been working on a project to raise money for charity. This can take lots of different forms, and students have chosen to fundraise for a range of charities.
One group of students decided to join together with their football team and host a charity match to fundraise for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
The group of boys, led by Rocco Evans, carried an impressive array of tasks to make sure the event ran smoothly. This included:
- Booking the pitch
- Producing posters to advertise the match
- Organising the players and referee
- Asking for donations from the spectators.
The boys have so far raised a total of £70 and are still collecting.

Groundwork North Wales
Secondly, the Team Cymru project marked the end of their time with Groundwork North Wales by celebrating their achievements at Alyn Waters Country Park.
The project, supported by the Prince’s Trust, is a 12-week programme for young people between 16 and 25. It ims to help them build confidence and gain skills to enable them to take their next step into employment or further training.
The Bellevue Playgroup in Wrexham were excited to learn that they have been awarded a Golden Grant of ￡5,000 in funding as part of the Tesco Stronger Starts community funding initiative.
Golden Grants are awarded twice a year and are part of the Tesco Stronger Starts ￡5 million grant programme. Groundwork UK administers the programme, with GNW looking after the scheme for the North Wales area.
The Tesco Stronger Starts scheme is open for applications throughout the year and you can find out more about the scheme and how to apply at groundworknorthwales.org.uk.
