The fundraisers and cheque for Pieta House

A class in Clane’s Scoil Mhuire has raised thousands of euros for the Pieta House counselling service.

A fifth year fundraising committee recently presented a cheque to Pieta House for €5000. “The fifth year students felt compelled to help this extremely influential charity in raising awareness of mental health and raising essential funds for Pieta House,” said school spokesperson, Grainne McGee.

The students raised €5000 for Pieta House over a number of months meeting the original goal that they had set out to achieve. They organised a variety of fundraising events such as bake sales, a Christmas Jumper Day, the infamous Student v Teacher soccer match and the popular Action Concert. Funds raised from the very successful Liam Lawton Christmas Concert also went towards this cause. The hard working committee was: Siofra McAullife, Stephen Duffy, Christopher Ryan, Robbie Walsh, Hannah Lee, Roisin Boyling, Katie Christanseen, Harry James, Kate Crowley, Emily Blake, Aoife Fitzgerald and Ciara Murphy. They were aided by their religion teachers, Mr Kavanagh, Ms Carden, Ms Mc Mahon and Mr Breslin and their Year Head, Mr Cahillane. The committee thanked all who supported and the cause.

A large number of students also participated in the ‘Darkness into Light’ walk for Pieta.
