From face painting and Pudsey Bear ears to samosas and cake...Corwen had it all going on!

Friday 18th November 2016, Cowen College held a fundraising event and were hoping to raise £500 for their charity. They managed to raise £453 and with the help of Lloyds Bank who matched the figure actually raise £906. Well done to all involved.
The atmosphere was really chaotic, but only because everyone had a brilliant time. There was loads of food on sale: pancakes with fruit and Nutella, cakes and the samosas sold out in minutes. People from other colleges enjoyed this amazing event along with the hosting college, Corwen. Their great crusade to raise money for Children in Need wasn’t wasted whatsoever. It has definitely gone towards a good cause and may have affected children's lives around the world for the better.
We asked one of the organisers, Miss Wedderburn, how the money would be used, “There are many children throughout the world in need, so we aim to raise money to provide them with shelter, clean water, get an education and buy clothes for them.” 
Mrs Williams, who played a major role in organising the event introduced us to Anil Karra from Lloyds Bank who was very impressed with Corwen’s efforts and said, “We’re hoping to beat last year’s total and it’s looking good so far.” 

A big shout out to Corwen and Lloyds Bank for a funtastic event!
