Christmas 2016 Thanks

We would like to express our thanks on behalf of the children, staff and parents to the following:

Their many efforts are always great appreciated. It is truly in the spirit of Christmas to be so kind to those less fortunate. Thanks again.


Sponsored Parachute Jump

We are so grateful for the help from those who participated in this scary venture. Rachael Culloo and her cousin Stephen McMahon are two very brave people. All such efforts mean so much to us and we can never thank enough those who participate in them. We're not so sure we could go to these lengths ourselves but we are so proud of the courage and dedication of these two brave supporters.

Enjoy the video.

Sponsored Cycle

Ballinasloe Cycle Club are having their annual charity spin for us this year.

There are 2 cycles this year, a 50km and a 100k. The Club will be splitting the 100km group up into a 30kmh+ group to go on ahead and then the regular 100km group at about 25kmh. There will be a food stop about 60km into the race. For those doing the 50km this will be a nice relaxed spin also with a food stop halfway.

The Cycle will start and finish at St Teresa's. Our location is here.

The Club will also have spot prizes for lucky dips. Its 25e entry and sign in is from 8:30. Lots more information to follow but just save the date 28th August. The club can be found on Facebook here.
