Christmas market raises money for North Clwyd Animal Rescue

Just before Christmas, the Languages department at Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan organised a European Christmas market in order to raise money for the North Clwyd Animal Rescue, based in Trelogan.

There were several stalls selling European foods and drink (such as German stollen, French crêpes, Italian biscotti and even non-alcoholic mulled Ribena!). Various Christmas gifts were also available along with games, competitions and crafts. There was a really festive atmosphere with Christmas music playing. The learners really enjoyed the market event.

Sian Dolben, Curriculum Leader of Languages, said, “The event was a huge success and everyone really enjoyed trying European foods and drink. It was great for learners to be able to experience something that is such a big part of European culture. I am really pleased that we managed to raise £100 for NCAR, as it’s such a fantastic cause. I hope that we can make the European Christmas market an annual event!”

Jacob Riddle, Bethany Hughes (Year 7), Holly Waterhouse and Libby Williams (Year 8) were all finalists in a competition to design a Christmas card in a different language for NCAR. This ran before Christmas and Holly and Libby’s designs were joint winners.

Nicky Owen-Ford, Fundraising Manager for NCAR (North Clwyd Animal Rescue) said, “Thank you so much to all of the students at Emrys ap Iwan for raising so much at their European Christmas market. This was such a lovely idea and a great way to support a local charity. The money raised will help buy much needed toys for the NCAR animals. Thank you very much!”
