Coffee Morning in aid of Marymount Hospice
written by Christopher McSweeney, Publishing Assistant, eThentique Ltd.
On Thursday the 21st of October the Transition Year students, who are part of the GAA Future Leaders programme in the Patrician Academy Mallow, ran a coffee morning in aid of Marymount Hospice in the Hibernian Hotel.
The GAA Future Leaders programme is a transition year module in schools across the country. It is a joint initiative between the GAA and the Professional Development Services for Teachers. It is designed to promote maturity, initiative, responsibility and leadership skills in pupils.
To play our part in the event, the team at eThentique Ltd. decided we would donate a signed copy of the charity book “Lights on the Horizon” for the raffle that was taking place.
The event ran very smoothly and was a huge success. It kicked off at ten o’clock and right from the off it was very busy. All the cakes, buns and raffle prizes were donated by companies or the Transition Year students. The coffee morning ran for three hours, from ten in the morning until one o’clock in the afternoon.
Everyone was very generous and all in all approximately two thousand euros was raised.
We would like to thank everyone who got involved and supported the event!
Don’t forget, the “Lights on the Horizon” charity books are available to buy on this website, or in all good bookshops.
