Pupils at Ysgol Llanddulas are looking to unofficially break a world record as part of a fundraiser.

Ysgol Llanddulas pupils with the help of teachers and parents are set to row non-stop for seven days on a Concept 2 machine - 168 hours - in an attempt to raise money for the school and a defibrillator for the village.

Each person will take their turn in rowing for as long as possible or for a set duration.

A school spokesperson said: "Our Challenge will involve our pupils, teachers, parents and wider community all taking their turn in rowing to hopefully raise lots of money for the school for some great causes, in particular a new larger school mini bus.

"But most of all we want to organise an event that will be super fun, help and inspire our pupils forever.

"We want to raise enough money to fund purchase of new mini-bus – a life line to the school that will allow full size classes to be taken out on school trips (education, sports, etc).

"Ysgol Llanddulas won Sports school of the year for 2017/2018 and we wish to grow on that great achievement to all areas for our pupils.

"We also want to raise enough money to purchase and install a defibrillator or two in the village of Llanddulas."

The row is set to be educational for the pupils as well with the children set to learn about a different country each. Every meter covered to be converted to a mile and pupils will be asked to talk about what they have rowed past in their country in that distance.

The event will begin next Monday, March 18, and run until March 25 with other smaller events to be held to coincide with the row.

Events will include a bingo night, family sports morning, live choir performance, a coffee and cake afternoon and a tapas night.
