The schools submitted their proposals during a Virtual Grand Council last November and the ideas included Classroom Crufts, Dress up like a Dog Day, Dog Disco and a Blindfold obstacle course.

The school that raises the most money will be invited to a celebration event hosted by The Lord Mayor of Cardiff in May.

The Lord Mayor said: "I have really enjoyed visiting the schools and seeing first-hand the fantastic fundraising ideas that the children have come up with many ideas linking to the new Curriculum for Wales, helping support children to develop the skills they need to become enterprising, creative contributors. It also provided an opportunity for children to ask questions and talk about health and wellbeing and supporting people with disabilities.

"All the money raised for this year's Lord Mayors appeal will go towards much needed funding for Guide Dogs Cymru."
