Pupils donate some confirmation money
Sixth class pupils at St Fergal’s carried out a very generous act as they came to the end of their primary school careers.
The pupils decided to donate some of their confirmation money to charity.
The children did research on a number of causes and decided to support the Make A Wish Foundation and Greystones Cancer Support.
The pupils donated €125 each to the two organisations.
They made their confirmation back in March and handed over the cheques at their school last week.
Make A Wish Ireland grants the wishes of children aged between three and 17 years who are living with life-threatening medical conditions.
Their purpose is to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Greystones Cancer Support offers guidance, encouragement and support to cancer patients, their families and their friends.
Their services include support groups, a range of therapies, and activities.
The centre is located on La Touche Place in Greysotnes, and they can be contacted on (01) 2871601 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
