Thomond Community College raise funds for charities. Pictured at the Thomond Community College Cake sale were Fiona Tang, Mirela Shinnors and Abbie Mc Namara.




They raised 73 Euro for the Alzheimer Society of Ireland, 131 Euro for Milford Hospice and 90 Euro for Limerick Animal Welfare. Their final event raised 401 euro – it was a ‘jeans day’ in aid of the homeless for Christmas which was given to the Simon Community in Limerick. Since the students were doing an enterprise module as part of LCVP they could have kept the money themselves but as one student, Holly O’Keeffe, pointed out, “Giving is always better than receiving and if we can make people’s Christmas a bit better, we would like to try.”

Well done to all involved!
