Students of St. Clare's, Manorhamilton get behind the project.
Niamh is an R.E. and Music teacher in Manorhamilton and has had the benifit of the enthusiasm of her students who have adopted the project as part of their humanitarian work in the school. Last year, a teacher, Mr. Cassells, shaved off his beard and hair, encouraged by the Principal and other male teachers who had their legs waxed for the cause. This was a whole school event and raised €8,000 which went a long way towards acquiring the bus for the Don Orione Centre. Those teachers were such good sports and were a great example to the youth that aid is not all dreary but can be a bit of fun if supported by others.
