A FLINT school has been given £700 by a building society.
The Chester branch of the Yorkshire Building Society chose Ysgol Maes Hyfryd as one of its charities of the year.
The branch held an open day where customers were given a token each and asked to choose between three nominated charities.
Headteacher Jane Kelly said: “What a fantastic surprise – first to be nominated and secondly to receive a cheque for £700.
“Each year a team of athletes and swimmers from Ysgol Maes Hyfryd attend the Welsh Special Games. This year the games are to be held in Bangor and we are looking to fund a team of 20 competitors which will mean raising approximately £3,000.”
