On Friday December 9th, students from Neath Port Talbot College held a Christmas Quiz and raffle at Resolven Miner’s Welfare for the fundraising section of their Welsh Bacc qualification. The charitywhich they decided to support was Maggie’s Cancer Care and at the end of the night the hard working girls managed to collect a total of £105 for the cause.
When attending the quiz I asked Ffion Owen, one of the organizers, a few questions on the planning behind the event. “The quiz was organized for our Welsh Bacc qualification at college. We wanted to support Maggie’s Cancer Care as they don’t only help those living with cancer but also provide help and support for the families of those suffering. The charity also helps people get back into work after recovering”. I also asked if there were any other ideas in the making to continue with their fundraising. “We plan to hold a charity curry night at Panshee’s in Skewen and we also want to do something sponsored, maybe a walk or sponsored silence. I have really enjoyed fundraising with the girls because it’s good to be able to get to know others while fundraising money for such a good charity”,
Most of the turnout consisted of the village youth however the girls managed to sell raffle tickets to the usual visitors at the bar.
I thoroughly enjoyed attending the quiz! I thought that it provided a fun and relaxing atmosphere and got everyone into the Christmas spirit, and winning first prize wasn’t that bad either!
