Ysgol Pen-y-Garth students raise funds for Ukraine and UNICEF

A school in PENARTH showed solidarity with Ukraine, with students doing what they can to help refugees.

The children of Ysgol Pen-y-Garth on Sully Road raised funds for Ukrainians who have been forced to flee their homes due to the ongoing conflict.

Fourth-grade students at the school came up with many fundraising ideas and picked three:

  • Participate in a one-day cyclathon;
  • Manufacture and sale of clay candles;
  • Holding a ‘how many candies are in the jar?’ competetion.

Year four pupils have raised more than £750 so far, which will be donated to UNICEF – a charity that helps protect children at risk, including those affected by the ongoing war in Ukraine.

Year Four teacher Delyth Vaughan said: “The school has been overwhelmed by the generosity of the Pen-y-Garth community and they are extremely proud of their students.

“However, this is just the beginning – other age groups are now planning their own fundraising ideas.”

This includes the sixth year who will sell blue and yellow ribbons, the fifth year who participated in a sponsored walk and the third year who participated in a jumpathon.
