Stu­dents hon­our their two late class­mates with €10k do­na­tion

Bray People - - NEWS -

The stu­dents and staff of St Bren­dan’s Col­lege raised in ex­cess of €10,000 in a fundrais­ing event to com­mem­o­rate two of their stu­dents who sadly passed away dur­ing the aca­demic year.

The whole school com­mu­nity car­ried out the event in mem­ory of Jack Har­vey and Kee­lan O’Con­nor from Bray who died in Septem­ber and De­cem­ber last year.

The boys of St Bren­dan’s or­gan­ised a 24-hour soc­cer marathon to raise money for Aware and Menin­gi­tis Re­search Foun­da­tion Ire­land. On April 22, the stu­dents played soc­cer into the wee hours in the hope of rais­ing aware­ness of men­tal health and menin­gi­tis. It was sup­ported by the whole school as well as the greater lit­tle Bray com­mu­nity. They re­ceived spon­sor­ship from fam­ily and friends and raised a breath­tak­ing €10,175 to be divided evenly among both char­i­ties.
