Christmas Fundraisers

?? The Bronntanas Appeal Committee recruit volunteers every year to buy a gift for children in need in Mayo. This year 3rd year 1 collected money, were matched with three children and donated presents to them.

A very successful hot chocolate morning was also hosted by Ms. Keane and €628 was raised for the Claremorris Red Cross. Ms. Keane is also helping with the Claremorris Red Cross Food appeal and students donated lots of food to this worthy cause.

“Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.”
