Stu­dents host fundraiser for dioce­san trip

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

FOUR fifth year stu­dents from Co­laiste Bhride Carnew re­cently held a cof­fee morn­ing in sup­port of their ef­forts to vol­un­teer as helpers in the an­nual Ferns Dioce­san Pil­grim­age to Lour­des in May.

Sarah Mul­hall, Emily Parle, Fiona Boland and Eoin Ka­vanagh hope to ac­com­pany and help the el­derly, dis­abled and sick pil­grims from May 17 to 22, in­clude as­sist­ing at meal times and help­ing with a va­ri­ety of tasks as re­quired.

They are busy fundrais­ing in or­der to cover the cost of their ac­co­mo­da­tion and flights and, to that end, hosted a cof­fee morn­ing in Mur­phy’s Ho­tel, Ti­na­hely, which raised over €1,300.

‘We are over­whelmed with the sup­port we re­ceived for this cof­fee morn­ing fund- raiser in Ti­na­hely. Thanks to Mur­phy’s Ho­tel for the use of the func­tion room. There was a large se­lec­tion of de­li­cious home­made cakes on of­fer, thanks to the gen­eros­ity of all who baked. We would like to thank the spon­sors, sup­port­ers and the many kind peo­ple who helped us in any way with this fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive,’ the group said.
