MORE than 1,000 people contended with wet weather to attend a college’s family funday.

Coleg Cambria's Northop College campus hosted its annual Sunday Funday.

Activities included visits to the college’s animal centre, along with the children’s activity centre with its range of rides and bouncy castles.

Youngsters took part in tractor, digger and model railway rides.

The funday raised funds for North East Wales Hospices, which is the college’s charity of the year and donates funds to Hope House Children’s Hospice, Nightingale House and St Kentigern Hospice.

Vivienne Martin, a director at the college, said: “The family funday at Northop was really successful again this year, with over 1,000 visitors attending.

“It was great to see staff and students working together to host this event, which gives the local community an opportunity to find out what goes on at their local college.”

She added: “Hopefully a considerable amount of money has been raised for the college charities and I would like to thank everyone who supported us despite the weather conditions on Sunday.”

The Northop campus will host an unaffiliated dressage contest tomorrow from 5.30pm to 9pm.
