“Emma and Iwan from Age Cymru came to our school assembly.
“They said someone from Ysgol Gymraeg Pen-y-Garth had won a bike as part of the Bobble Day poster competition and we were all very excited.
“I couldn’t believe it when Emma showed everyone the winning design and it turned out that I had won the bike.
“It was a very nice surprise.”
The bike was donated to Age Cymru by Don Skene Cycles on Newport Road in Cardiff.
