Year 11 students at Ysgol Friars in Bangor have raised £2404.89 for Ty Gobaith/Hope House, as part of the Welsh Baccalaureate KS4 Enterprise and Employability Challenge.

The central focus of the Welsh Baccalaureate challenge is to provide a vehicle for 14-16 year olds to consolidate and develop essential and employability skills. The qualification helps learners to prepare for their future by developing skills, attributes and behaviours valued by post-16 educators and potential employers.

Ty Gobaith opened in 2004 and provides care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families living in the North Wales area.
