The event was in aid of their rugby and football teams upcoming tour-in April 2017 they will be heading to Barcelona to play 3 rugby games and one football game against Spanish schools.
The event went on from 1.30pm on Saturday afternoon before the Wales v. South Africa game and it was a successful day all round with a Wales win and boys managing to raise upwards of £2,000 towards their tour.
The CJCH sponsored t-shirts worn by the boys during their efforts was designed and made by Owen Bull of Happy Embroidery in Dinas Powys-A big thanks to them as they looked great.
Good luck to the team with the rest of their fundraising efforts!
