Schools turn sea of red for two important charitiesJanuary 31st, 2020
Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools created a sea of red to raise money for two important charities on Friday 31st January.
Children, staff and even contractors across the five Monmouth schools wore a splash of red and made donations towards the Wear Red for Wales and Velindre campaign.
They also supported a scheme launched by a Monmouth student to fund a heart screening day for around 100 young people in the town next summer.
Year 11 student at Monmouth School for Girls, Darcey, is a Velindre Ambassador and her family has been directly helped by the organisation.
Sixth Form student, Elinor, set up Hartbeat after being inspired by her cousin Frank Arentz, a former Monmouth School for Boys’ pupil, who was diagnosed with a heart condition.
Frank’s condition was discovered during a screening, run by the Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) charity.
