Over the week, a car treasure hunt, a bingo night at the primary school, and  a film night was held for Ysgol Llanrug’s pupils. As well as a school sports evening and the summer fair itself.

One of the organisers, Judith Beech, said: “We discovered that because of cuts, the weekly swimming lessons for Ysgol Llanrug pupils were under threat.

“So, we decided to try and raise the £2,500 needed to continue them next year.

“We are delighted to have made £2078 over the week, and there are plans to hold a school disco or another film night near the end of term to try and reach the £2,500 target.”
