Tonypandy Community College students and staff have been busy collecting Easter eggs this half term to donate to the children’s wards at the Royal Glamorgan hospital in Llantrisant.

Staff put out an appeal to students to help those in need this Easter, by donating an egg to raise a smile on the face of someone less fortunate. Staff were amazed at the response, with over 85 eggs in total collected. This even included eggs from other year groups, who were not initially involved in the appeal, illustrating the generosity of students at this important time.

Katie Hewitt, Cariad-Anne Gubbings, Lola Shorschinski, Teifion Thomas and Josh Bull visited the Royal Glamorgan hospital on Wednesday, handing out Easter eggs to the children on the ward and spoke to parents and medical staff. The students were excellent ambassadors for the school, and even arranged to help fundraise for the hospital in the future.

The ward staff said: “It is so incredibly kind of the students, and made more worthwhile seeing the faces on the children on our wards today. With so many eggs, we will be able to spread a little happiness  to each and every child who is brought here over Easter, which will hopefully make their stay a little more enjoyable.”

Once again, the school would like to pass on a very big thank you to students and their parents for their support, and everyone at the College wishes you a happy Easter!
