Wexford Transition Year Students Present 5K Cheque To Charity

This is such as selfless gesture…

Two Transition Year students from Wexford recently presented a cheque of over 5k to a local charity.

Both Holly Rothwell and Sara Williamson, who are TY students in FCJ Bunclody, recently presented a cheque for €5541.39 to the Wexford Hospice Homecare committee.

The money was raised through a mini-company the girls set up as part of their TY programme.

The mini-company the students organised was a 2022 Wexford Wildlife Calendar.

All profits from sales of the calendars went to Wexford Hospice Homecare.

Speaking on the gesture, a spokesperson for the school said “Well done, girls, what a selfless and compassionate thing to do!”

Both the students and the school should be proud.
