Pupils do­nate some con­fir­ma­tion money

Bray People - - NEWS -

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 info@grey­stones­cancer­sup­port.com.
