Pupils from St. Canice PS in Dungiven have put their best forward to raise more than £4,000 for charity.

The students raised an impressive £4,707 for Action MS, Northern Ireland’s Multiple Sclerosis charity, by taking part in a ‘Walk for MS’ on October 21 in the Roe Valley Park.

Principal Ciaran Loane said 288 pupils participated.

“It was a tremendous effort by the pupils and local community for such a worthy cause, and with the funding being placed in our local area.

“We were delighted to be able to participate, and we look forward to further opportunities to support Action MS,” said Mr Loane.

Action MS Chief Executive officer, Ann Walker said: “Thanks to the generosity and support of schools like St Canice Primary School the walks for MS are at the core of Action MS support services.

“Action MS supports people living with multiple sclerosis, their families and carers in Northern Ireland. St Canice Primary School really enjoyed their morning’s walk and we are very grateful for their generous support,” she added.

Mrs Walker thanked the seven pupils from St Patrick’s College, Dungiven, who assisted the Action MS walks team on the day.
