Old Palace Residents Help Foodbank - And Publish a Book!
The Old Palace continually donates food to the local foodbank (Rhyl). At Christmas, they like to make an extra effort and donate toys, colouring books and sweets. In the current climate, no one wants to see children without Christmas presents. The foodbank not only provides those in need with necessities but also helps with form filling, CVs etc and is a service close to the hearts of the residents as can be seen by the gifts awaiting collection.
The residents at the Old Palace have also been busy writing a little book with fascinating stories of the past which they are planning to launch at a party on February 9th.
Although only a limited number of the book has been printed for circulation among the residents, the City Times will be at the launch and fuller details of the book will appear in our next issue.
Plough Helps Playgroup
As a non-profit making charity, St Asaph playgroup relies on fundraising activities, grants, donations and sponsorship to help buy new resources for the children.
Last year we raised money through the school fairs, autumn walk, raffles, St Asaph gala parade and tombola stall.
We would like to say a huge heart felt ‘thank you’ to Daf Jones at The Plough who has raised in excess of £1000 over the Xmas period for the playgroup! Thanks also to all the customers at The Plough who contributed to the fund and to the staff who contributed their ‘tips’ for a night for a really good cause.
This money will be spent on a computer corner, printer and tough trays.
Our next fundraising starts now as we are hoping to make some much needed improvements to the outside area! Please get in touch if you would like to join our committee, all ideas and donations welcome!
Final thanks to Tracey Edwards, Sarah Jerbi, Sandra and Holly who continue make the supreme effort to ensure that the playgroup gives the best possible start in life to our children.
