Next big raffle will support Ysgol Bryn Collen

Ysgol Bryn Collen will benefit from the next big raffle being run by teh Llangollen Coronaviris Help Group.

Co-ordinator Cat Mead posted on Facebook: "We will be doing another Large Raffle to raise funds for Ysgol Bryn Collen. ALL proceeds will go direct to the School.

"We have raised funds for Zero Food Waste and Food Share Llangollen and Llangollen Railway reaching great amounts with the support of Local Businesses and Residents donating prizes.

"PLEASE contact me direct with any Prize Donations you may be able to offer."

Cat can be contacted via the group's Facebook page at:

A note from the school/PTFA on the post says: "Ysgol Bryn Collen can't wait to welcome learners back to school when it's safe to do so. All monies raised from this raffle will be put towards resources and activities that promote learners' well-being as we support them through this difficult time."

* Sheena Grindley's voluntary work has been recognised.
Latest local people to be highlighted by Cat Meade during National Volunteers Week for their work on behalf of the community during the Covid-19 crisis are Sheena Grindley and drivers.

On Facebook Cate says: "Prescriptions are such a vital part of a lot of peoples lives, when I set up the service this was the biggest area to cover and the volume of calls for medication was overwhelming.

"We had a handful of Volunteers collecting 2 or 3 times a day, then Sheena, who is a member of The Rotary Club, along with the President of the Rotary Barry Pinel came up with idea of replacing the "dial a ride" to a prescription collection.

"Sheena realised the volume I was tackling and assisted with collections, as I became busier she kindly took to the challenge and has been running the prescription requests direct since week 4, taking many calls,emails and texts a day, with her volunteer drivers collecting and delivering prescriptions across Llangollen 6 days a week.

"Many of you will know Sheena as twice Mayor of Llangollen, Town Council, Cittislow Group, Secretary of the Rafa Club, Rotary Club and Dial a Ride. As well as a wife, mother and grandmother Sheena is always finding ways to help this Town.

"I would also personally like to THANK YOU Sheena, for not only the help (which took a lot of pressure off) also for your kindness, you have been reassuring and also for telling me off for overloading myself not to mention the "Bingo" and Raffles.

"Please Join me in a Big THANK YOU to the Lovely Sheena and all the Volunteers delivering medication daily."
