This was tied to their business Bee Mindful Buzziness; The children have their own business to raise funds for their class at school and a percentage is donated to charity.
One of the letters, addressed to Hollie, says: “Hi. I am from Ysgol San Sior. In class we have a business called Bee Mindful Buzziness. We are six and seven years old. We donate to Mind and Young Minds. I am a big fan of I’m A Celebrity.
The pupils have been following I’m A Celeb
“I have a few questions. Is [it] cold in the castle? Have you had bugs to eat? Is it spooky?”
“Hope you love the gift. Hope to hear from you soon.”
Lisa Jones, year two class teacher, said: “In their letters they have spoken about their business and have offered words of encouragement.
A bee pin and poem for Ant and Dec
The year two class have indeed written letters for each of the celebrities and Ant and Dec. “This was a suggestion of theirs due to the fact that they run a class business to support mental health charities. They felt that the celebrities may need a boost of encouragement.
“As part of Bee Mindful Buzziness, the children write poems to support a positive mental health and link each one to a bee theme due to our school keeping bees on the school grounds.

“The children then sell each poem with a bee charmed bracelet or a bee pin badge or keyring.
“They then donate a percentage from their sales to Aberconwy Mind charity and Young Minds. They have donated £2,000 since Sept 2019.”
