Charitable youngsters from a Denbigh primary school have kindly raised funds for other youngsters affected by last month's flooding in St Asaph and came up with an idea for their very own Christmas present.
Pupils at Ysgol Frongoch, Denbigh held a film night and raised £250. The School's Student Council raised the funds but had their own ideas on how the funding should be spent.
Head of Ysgol Frongoch, Ruth Thackray, said: " I spoke to the headteacher at Ysgol Esgob Morgan to ask for the type of games the school played at lunchtimes, so that our youngsters could help all those who were affected directly and indirectly by the flooding.
"Every class in Frongoch chose their best artist and they designed a 'Thinking of you at Christmas' card for classes and individuals. They bought £20 Toys-R-Us gift cards for the children who were in temporary accommodation so they could replace some of the toys they may have lost, bought Playstation games and and bought sweets for every class in the school. Four children came with me to Esgob Morgan and they went to every class donating the gifts and explaining where they had come from and the sentiments behind it/them."
"I am just so proud of their actions and the way in which they want to help others - they have been empowered to do this on their own accord and for me, it is so much more powerful that it comes from them. Society is in good hands if they continue to grow up with this attitude!
Headteacher of Ysgol Esgob Morgan, Tim Redgrave, said: "The gesture of pupils at Ysgol Frongoch was so touching and it really means a lot that children from another school have come up with such a lovely idea. The look on the faces of our children at Esgob Morgan was a picture. They are so delighted with the gifts and from the bottom of their hearts, they want to say a big "Thank you" to Frongoch for their generosity".
The school has also received support from Prestatyn High School and Ysgol y Faenol, Bodelwyddan.
