Fundraising for Crumlin Children’s Hospital

Miss Carey’s second year CSPE class organised a project to collect money for Crumlin Children ‘s Hospital. There were two fundraisers held. They started with a soccer blitz in which each participant contributed €2. There was also a sweet jar competition where students had to pay 50c for 3 attempts to guess how many sweets were in a jar.

Students participated in various events committees and groups.  There was a finance committee, a permission group, a raffle group and an advertising committee. Each of these groups contributed a large amount to the project. Students from Ms. Carey’s LCA Hotel, Catering and Tourism class contributed €100 from a restaurant event they held.

In total €450 was raised for the Children’s Hospital. The class would like to thank everyone who contributed to the fund.
