School children have said “diolch yn fawr” to a Llanidloes law firm after receiving a donation worth hundreds of pounds to buy new Welsh books.

Ysgol Gynradd Llanidloes pupils and staff are working “extremely hard” to achieve a gold award for Welsh learners in English-medium primary schools.

The £250 donation from Milwyn Jenkins & Jenkins on behalf of Friends of Llanidloes CP School will be used by the Criw Cymraeg, a group of pupils promoting Welsh around the school, to buy reading resources to help them achieve the top Cymraeg Campus status.

Ysgol Gynradd Llanidloes’ Miss Evans said: “The school is currently working extremely hard to achieve the gold award in the Cymraeg Campus.


“This donation is gratefully appreciated. Thank you very much.”

The school has previously said that the Criw Cymraeg “love working with the local community”.

Pupils gathered outside the Milwyn Jenkins & Jenkins office in Great Oak Street to thank the firm’s director and chartered Adrian Foulkes in person for their generous donation.

Adrian said: “Milwyn Jenkins & Jenkins are very proud to support Llanidloes Primary School in particular providing Welsh learning resources which have been gratefully received.”
