Prior Park Preparatory School (PPPS) has been supporting Bala Children’s Centre for the last four years.

Having adopted Bala as their partners, PPPS has found the relationship to be very beneficial. The school has focused on developing relationships and corresponding with the Bala pupils.

There have been numerous fundraising events, which have been widely supported, such as a wine tasting event for parents, school raffles and tombolas, sponsored walks, ‘pudding fastings’, concerts and sharing Bala wrist bands. These have helped to raise money for specific projects such as buying cows and goats and mosquito nets.

The relationship between PPPS and Bala has not only benefitted the Centre’s children, it has also benefitted the PPPS pupils as it has given the pupils an awareness of those who are less fortunate than themselves and of the daily hardships they endure.

Some pupils joined the annual visit to Bala and helped with housebuilding, building a playground and teaching sports.
