Yellow day at Llay school was a mellow hit

YELLOW fever struck at Park CP in Llay – but it was all in a good cause for charity.

The school enthusiastically embraced the Nightingale House Hospice’s Go Yellow campaign as part of hospice awareness month.

Headteacher Amanda Williams said the idea began after a pupil asked her if the school could help Nightingale House because she had a relative that went to the hospice.

And help they did – with some youngsters even dying their hair bright yellow. “We thought it was an excellent suggestion and it grew from there,” said Mrs Williams.

“On Thursday we wore yellow clothes and sold cakes which had yellow icing. Nightingale House supplied soft toy aliens which were sold.

“Year Six children made decorative loom wrist bands which were also sold.”

Mrs Williams thanked everyone who helped the initiative, saying it had been a tremendous success.

Go Yellow is promoted throughout the UK to raise vital funds for hospices such as Nightingale House.

The yellow theme comes from the national emblem of the hospice movement – the sunflower.

Nightingale House area fundraiser Laura Parry added: “We are very grateful to all the pupils and staff for supporting the hospice through our Go Yellow campaign. It was great to see them taking part.”

“This year it will cost £2.65 million to run the hospice, and we receive only 19 per cent of this from the local health board.”
