Big hearted staff and pupils from St, Mary’s, Limavady, have raised almost £4,000 for charity, including Trócaire.

The Roe Valley school collected £2,000 during their Lenten Campaign with pupils taking part in a variety of activities including bun sales, raffles, penalty shots out and much more.

The school handed the proceeds of their charity work over to Roisin O’ Hara Trócaire from with two cheques.

“A special word of congratulations to the Year1 3 and 14 pupils who carried out and led a variety of these activities,” said St. Mary’s principal Mary McCloskey.

“These funds are being matched by the UK Government and will be totalled at £4,000.

“This year sees St. Mary’s continue its long tradition of working with Trócaire to raise awareness and much needed funds for those suffering from poverty in other countries.

“In addition to this, following the devastation in Nepal, a number of events were organised last week and resulted in a second cheque of £1,500 being presented for Trócaire’s aid efforts there.”
