People were holding coffee and cake mornings all week toraise funds for Macmillan, and the Purple Murple Group wanted to do their bitto support.
They set up a stall a stall and during the school lunch break, they sold thingslike bags that they had designed themselves, badges, wood burnt items such as door hangers and book marks, andpens. The total they raised was £55.
The same week on the Friday (26th) saw thesame group, along with the rest of Bryn Celynnog school, participate in asponsored walk. 92 pupils from year 10 raised funds for Macmillan, whilst therest of the school raised funds to improve the school facilities. The walk wentto Llantrisant forestry, although locals simply call it Smilog Woods.
The walk was well thought out, withstarting times staggered depending on the year group as to avoid bottle necks, and tomake things easier for the staff to support. The walk took four and a halfhours to complete, along with a lunch break, and Purple Murple decided toinvite their Youth Re Engagement and Participation officers along for theseveral mile walk.
