26/06/2018 LORETO COLLEGE MAKES SVP DONATION

Members of the Loreto College Coleraine St Vincent de Paul group presented a cheque to representatives of the Society of St Vincent de Paul in the St John’s, St Malachy’s and Dunboe parishes on Tuesday 26th June. The total amount raised this year for SVP at Loreto College was a very welcome £922:50. This money will go towards local causes identified by the St. John’s, St, Malachy’s and Dunboe conferences.

The various fundraising initiatives held at Loreto this year included two draws, one on behalf of St. John’s and one organised by the Loreto SVP. The Loreto students also took part in a charity walk on an extremely cold day in February and even paid for the privilege! The final fundraising event was the annual Loreto SVP coffee morning in the Convent which once again proved to be very popular with local people as a chance to mingle with neighbours and parishioners while listening to the talents of the Loreto musicians, all while having an abundance of tray bakes and scones to choose from. The Loreto SVP once again donated over 30 packed food hampers at Christmas.

Loreto College’s SVP Coordinator, Mr Kevin Conroy, commented that it had been a very successful year. Mr Conroy expressed appreciation on behalf of the College to everyone who contributed in any way to the funds raised for St Vincent de Paul in the College this year.
