Clane students raise over €4,000

Leanne Barrett presents the cheque to Mick Rochford

Students at Clane’s Scoil Mhuire have raised over €4000 for Aoibheann's Pink Tie Cancer Charity.

A cheque for €4,705 was presented to Cancer Support charity, Aoibheann's Pink Tie, by sixth year students in Scoil Mhuire Community School Clane on November 15.

Mick Rochford from the charity came to the school for the presentation.

Aoibheann’s Pink Tiee, which is a national children’s cancer charity was set up in 2010 by Mick Rochford and Jimmy Norman after the tragic loss of Jimmy’s daughter Aoibheann to cancer, aged just 8.

When Aoibheann passed away the men wore pink ties at the funeral which was Aoibheann’s favourite colour. The charity was formed in her memory.
