Stu­dents’ char­ity cy­cle for Road to Round­wood project

Bray People - - NEWS -

TWO fourth year stu­dents raised funds for the Road to Round­wood project by cy­cling all the way to school in Bray from the vil­lage.

Car­men O’Con­nor Foote and Ava May Tay­lor both at­tend school at Loreto Bray and were try­ing to think of ways of as­sist­ing plans to re­lo­cate a refugee fam­ily, who are flee­ing from war, in Round­wood.

They de­cided on a spon­sored 20k cy­cle to school and set off on their ex­pe­di­tion, af­ter get­ting in a lit­tle bit of prac­tise first. The girls suc­cess­fully achieved their mis­sion hav­ing set off in the early hours of the morn­ing and also man­aged to raise €1,300 in dona­tions from school friends, neigh­bours and rel­a­tives.

The Road to Round­wood group car­ried out nu­mer­ous fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties over the past year or so and are now fo­cused on find­ing a suit­able house to rent in the lo­cal­ity for a fam­ily from a war-torn re­gion. Any­one who is in­ter­ested in rent­ing out their prop­erty can con­tact Tomás at 087 9833896.
