The S.V.P hampers- 17th December

May 14, 2014 Transition Year

As part of our religion course we all split into groups of six. Each group was given €60 each to spend on food that would last families in need over the Christmas period. Some people went to the local supermarkets and some people went to Blanchardstown Shopping Centre. One group went to Tesco Clearwater and Tesco kindly donated €20 to spend in store. One group stayed behind to get the hampers ready. The hampers were sent to families associated with St. Declan’s who find it hard throughout the Christmas period. The money was fundraised by the teachers and students. We had a non-uniform day and everybody brought in €2 each and whatever was left over was donated to S.V.P. When all the hampers were packed, Ms Hedderman brought them down to the S.V.P drop-in centre. It was a good experience to have taken part in and to know that you have helped someone in need.
