FIONN Phelan’s feet were killing him in school all day last Friday and it was no wonder after walking the eight miles to the PBS school in Newbridge from Suncroft in his bare feet writes Paula Campbell.
Fionn (17) raised over e1,600 for local charity Cara Projects to help build six new class rooms for an orphanage school in Kenya.
“It was brilliant,” said Fionn. “It took me two and a half hours and my feet were very sore by the end. We got loads of support from people along the way. I kept thinking for every step I took it was 50 cent towards Cara Projects. I’ll be going over on June 16 for two weeks to help with the building. I had to do a full day in school with sore feet - I had to stand on my tippy toes for the rest of the day but it was worth it.”
