First Give Charity Event

The Year 9 pupils at Llantwit Major School have been working with First Give this term as part of their Welsh Baccalaureate course. The programme has involved the pupils contacting charities and working with them to try and win money for them. Thank you to the 25 charities who have given their time to speak to pupils on the phone, communicate with pupils via email or meet with pupils at the school. The pupils have really appreciated this and has had a positive impact on the pupils and their work.


The final event took place on Monday 10th July where 6 teams competed for the prize money. The pupils were judged by the Deputy Mayor of Llantwit Major, the Chairman of Llantwit Major Rotary Club, a representative from Llantwit Major town hall and the School's Head Boy. Some of the charities also attended the event. Congratulations to the winners of the prize money generously donated by First Give. 1st Prize - £1000 went to Ty Hapus, 2nd Prize - £250 went to Safeline 3rd Prize - £250 went to Ty Hafan


The other 3 teams shared the money raised through the charity car wash which took place on 4th & 5th July. The charities which will receive a share of this money are:

Vale of Glamorgan Wildlife Trust/Llanmau/Ty Hafan

The pupils were enthusiastic and showed a real passion for the charities they were representing. We are extremely proud of the work they have completed and this will most surely enhance the next challenge the pupils will be set as part of their course. Well done to all Year 9 pupils!
