Llandrillo College back Blind Veterans UK

Students from Llandrillo College, Rhos on Sea, have been supporting Blind Veterans UK through the sales of donated items during their Enterprise Week.

Students have been organising raffles, name the teddy stalls, amongst other fundraising activities to raise money for Blind Veterans UK.

Regional fundraiser for Llandudno, Victoria Beech, said: "When I popped along to see the students are Llandrillo College yesterday and they seem to be getting on really well. We're really appreciative of their support."

Llandrillo college have supported Blind Veterans UK in the past, with a group of students tackling Wales's highest peak blindfolded! The trek up Snowdon took place in April of 2013 and 20 year old Matthew Roberts, who took part in the mammoth expedition said "As Blind Veterans UK has opened up a new centre in our local town of Llandudno, we felt it would be beneficial to raise awareness for this charity, as many local people might not know about its existence and the fine quality of services it provides to help veterans discover life beyond sight loss."

Victoria Beech, Regional Fundraiser said "The students have shown incredible determination and drive in choosing to organise such a challenging event.  It has been a pleasure supporting them and we would welcome the opportunity to do the same for any other students wishing to fundraise for us in the future".

It is yet to be confirmed how much the students raised for Blind Veterans UK throughout their Enterprise week but we are very grateful for their continued support throughout 2013.
