Tilley Discovers That ‘Silence Is Golden’ As She Completes A Tough Challenge For Charity!

Earlier this year, Tilley, who is one of the more chatty members of Alway House, organised her own sponsored silence in aid of a charity very close to her heart.

Tilley discovered that ‘silence is golden’ by staying quiet for a whole school day. In the process she attracted many sponsors who encouraged her to extend her efforts, and when her challenge was complete she had raised nearly £200 for the Welsh Children’s Cancer Charity, LATCH.

Allie Price from LATCH said: “Tilley’s gift will be used to provide care, comfort and hope for the future for the children and young people in Wales who suffer from cancer and leukaemia and who attend the Children’s Hospital for Wales for treatment. Without the continuing aid of supporters like Tilley, our work would be impossible to achieve and we are greatly in her debt!”

This event was even more of a challenge for Tilley as it took place during a very busy day in Alway House. However, fellow pupils, staff, parents and visitors were impressed by Tilley’s self-control with many contributing to the sponsorship pot.

During the Lent Half-Term holidays, Tilley visited the Children’s Hospital for Wales to present them with a cheque and at the same time, visited a family friend who is receiving treatment, care and support there. Also in Tilley’s thoughts was Christ College pupil Alex McIlroy, a school mate of Tilley’s, who passed away in June 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer.

A big WELL DONE and thank you to Tilley for her excellent effort!
