In Carrowdore Primary School, our pupils have made a great start to our Charity Collection this year. Last year, we raised the grand total of £1700.00 and were able to sponsor a child in Mali through "Plan International" and 2 children in Haiti through the charity "OMS." The Blythswood Shoebox Appeal was once again very successful despite the recession. We were able to send sixty-two shoe boxes this year and the Blythswood representatives who came to collect them were absolutely delighted. . A huge THANK YOU also for your very generous donations to our appeal for the victims of the Philippines disaster. Our little school raised a fantastic £260.00, which is already in the post to PLAN International, who are co ordinating a major relief operation.
Other charities we also support are:
R.N.L.I Guide Dogs Training
Crown Jesus Ministries CLIC Sergent
Open Hand Outreach British Heart Foundation
Barnardo's Ulster Cancer Foundation
R.N.I.B N.I. Hospice
Cedar Foundation Macmillan Cancer
Many thanks for the continuing contribution from all pupils. We look forward to continuing this great work.
