Leinster rugby's James Tracey launches Newbridge College charity fashion show

James Tracey visits his former school

Leinster Rugby player James Tracy visited his old school, Newbridge College on Tuesday to talk to a group of TY students about their upcoming trip to Jamaica.

Thirteen students from the college are travelling to Jamaica in April to visit the Mustard Seed Community Home for abandoned
children with disabilities.

While there, the students will help at the home with some light construction, landscaping, painting, building/repairs and entertaining the children. The children who live in the home benefit hugely from these visits and the funding provided significantly improves their quality of life. For the Irish children who visit, the trip is a life changing experience.

A committee of Newbridge College parents, led by Sheila Zebedee, is holding a fashion show in the Keadeen Hotel on Friday March 8 to raise funds for the Mustard Seed Community Home.

Tickets are €65 and are available by emailing mustardseedfashionshow@gmail.com or by texting 085 7164597.

Tickets include a prosecco reception at 1pm followed by a four course lunch and fashion show.

Diamonds and Pearls, Kalu, Vanity Fair, Roisin Linnane, Jennifer’s Hat Emporium, Virenze Shoes, Whelan’s Menswear and Relay Newbridge are all participating. A glamorous and fun day is guaranteed.
