St. Aidan's Fundraiser
The 1st year students in St Aidan's School in Cootehill, Co. Cavan organised a 10K fundraising walk in memory of a much-loved former pupil of the school, Karen Jackson. Karen died recently at a tragically young age. The students' objective was to fundraise for the Liver Unit in St Vincent's. Having undertaken this gruelling endeavour the students raised the magnificent sum of €2,000 for the Unit. Pictured below are the students presenting their cheque to John Hickey of St Vincent's in the company of Tom Jackson, Karen's Dad and Sinéad Ní Bhaoill who organised this activity . On behalf of St. Aidan’s, we are extremely grateful to the students, the parents and to the teachers in the school in supporting the event.
