Stu­dents raise money for Tan­za­nian chil­dren

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

STAFF and stu­dents at Co­laiste Craobh Ab­hann made a pre­sen­ta­tion of €1,300 re­cently to Dr Tr­ish Scan­lan.

Bray na­tive Tr­ish works for an NGO based in Tanzania that sup­ports chil­dren and their fam­i­lies who have been di­ag­noses with can­cer.

Dr Scan­lan has been the main driv­ing force in set­ting up child can­cer ser­vices in Dar es Salamm.

The stu­dents held a Christ­mas jumper non-uni­form day at the school to sup­port her work and the char­ity.

Mr Rice and the stu­dent coun­cil or­gan­ised the fundraiser. Money raised will help sup­port the im­por­tant work done by this char­ity and will help to save chil­dren’s lives.

The Tan­za­nian based NGO’s name, Tu­maini La Maisha, means hope for life. In the UK and in Ire­land the NGO is called ‘Their lives mat­ter’.
