A HUGE thank you to everyone that supported the children this year with their ‘Numberthon’ event. In total we have raised an amazing £2598.30 which will all go towards supporting the cost of trips, visits and workshops for our children. A massive well done to Ffion, JayJay, and Joseph who managed to raise the most money for their respective key stages.
