Celebrating the season and raising money

19 December 2016

Cardiff University’s School of Welsh has been celebrating the holiday season with a range of fun social activities and raising money in the process.

A quiz night was held for School staff and students on Monday 5 December, led by the Quizmaster, Keith Davies in The Lodge in Cardiff Student’s Union. This was an enjoyable evening full of laughter with almost 35 people competing. Due to the entry fee, raffle and other activities and donations, the School community has raised £130 for Save the Children.

In addition to the quiz night, the School has been collecting various materials and items for the city’s homeless people. The contributions included warm winter clothing, sleeping bags and toiletry items. The contributions amounted to a car boot full and were distributed to Cardiff’s homeless population by the congregation at Ararat Baptist Church in Whitchurch.

As the University prepares to close for the Christmas holidays, the School would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
