Mayor Cllr Crimmings with students from St John Baptist
Students from St John Baptist School, Aberdare, have been thanked for their contribution to the Mayor of Rhondda Cynon Taf’s Charity Appeal. The young people held coffee mornings, sponsored walks and collections raised £300.00 for three charities.
Each year in Rhondda Cynon Taf, the elected mayor chooses a number of charities to support during their year in office. This year, Mayor Cllr Ann Crimmings has chosen to support Guide Dogs Cymru, Macmillan Cancer Support (RCT) and Diabetes Peer Support for Children (RCT).
The students from St John’s were welcomed to the Mayor’s Parlour, along with Deputy Head of the school Mr Parry Jones. The Mayor thanked them and introduced them to two trainee guide dogs Tommy and Reena, along with their trainer Sarah Davies, who is an ex-pupil of the school. Cllr Crimmings and Sarah were happy to answer questions from the young people.
Cllr Crimmings said: “As Mayor of Rhondda Cynon Taf, one of my priorities is to raise awareness of and valuable funds for charitable organisations. I am very grateful to everyone at St John Baptist School for their efforts to help others.”
