Pupils and staff at Ysgol Harri Tudur/ Henry Tudor School have been supporting charities, thinking of and helping others during these challenging times. Since the summer of 2021 ,the school has raised £550 for the school’s wellbeing garden, raised just over £600 for Macmillan Nurses in October, donated sweet stocking treats to Sandy Bears Children’s Bereavement Charity and £800 for Children in Need in December.

In the last two weeks, fundraising in school for the Ukraine via the Disasters Emergency Committee has reached just over £2,500, which has been achieved through a bucket rattle and a mega bake sale. (This fantastic amount will be matched by the UK government so is currently a minimum of at least £5,000)

The Sixth Form have additionally also raised £600 for Comic Relief on Red Nose Day 2022. The school is also collecting Easter Eggs to help Sandy Bears once again. Harri Tudur thanks its learners and its families who have already contributed to our fundraising efforts through buying cakes and making donations in school.

Harri Tudur’s fundraising efforts will continue for the Ukraine and staff and sixth form are now cycling from Pembroke to Kiev on two static exercise bikes in school reception, giving up any free time they may have before or after school. It is expected that this virtual journey which began on Wednesday, March 23, will take three weeks and that the school aims to raise a £1 per mile.
