St. Aidans School Ballintrillick Pupils fundraising for ST Vincent de Paul

Fundraising for Charity

Our school engages in Fundraising for various charities and good causes.

Fundraising for 2016/17

  • Coffee morning for the Hospice was held in conjunction with our beginning of the year school mass. We raised €162.00 which was gratefully received by our local Hospice in Sligo.
  • At Christmas the children produced a fantastic Christmas Magazine which was sold on the occasion of our Christmas carol service in our local St Brigid’s church. 
  • The children voted for their preferred local charity and the monies raised for the second year running went to ‘The Neo-natal Unit’ in Sligo General Hospital.
  • The children in the junior room organised a Christmas hamper for the St Vincent de Paul. This was gratefully received by our local St Vincent de Paul on the run up to Christmas.
  • The school holds at least one fundraising activity each year to support Lisa Barrin’s African school (Ms Barrins, a teacher at St. Aidans took a year out in 2015-2016 working with this school in Africa).
