CHILDREN are using artwork to raise money for a worthwhile cause.

Pupils at Ysgol Penyffordd have been working with two artists to produce pieces they can sell to raise money for a cystic fibrosis charity.

Deputy head teacher Claire Griffiths said: "We managed to secure an Arts Council for Wales grant to undertake a project to help enhance the children's literacy and numeracy skills.

"We decided to focus on money as that is something we feel children struggle with.

"Two artists, Honor Pedican and Elfin Bow, have come to the school this term to work with the children in Miss Peters' class and now they are going to sell the things they have made.

"The money is going to a Cystic Fibrosis charity because we have a little girl at the school, Theadora, who has the condition.

"It has thoroughly engaged the whole class and enhanced their knowledge and understanding of money and currency.

"They can see that their efforts are going to help benefit others."
