21/11/2018 CANDY CANE SALES FOR IRISH PILGRIMAGE TRUST

It is that time of year again, when the Justice League led by Mrs McCool and Mrs McCloskey, do their best to support the Irish Pilgrimage Trust, a registered charity, who for over 40 years have been travelling on pilgrimage/holiday to Lourdes with young people with special needs, from all over Ireland.
 
The Trust has over 1200 people travelling at Easter time and it is divided into small groups of approximately10 young people and 12 volunteer carers who stay in one of the many hotels in Lourdes.
 
To support the young people, we hope to encourage every pupil to write a kind, thoughtful or thank you message to a friend, sibling, parent, or carer.  Members of the Justice League will then attach the message to a candy cane and store it for delivery before Christmas. The hope is that all pupils will receive a candy cane.

The selling price is £1. For any bulk orders, there is a maximum price of £20!

The Justice League will be taking orders at break and lunch from Monday 26th November at the Y8 locker area. We hope that as many students (and teachers!) as possible will send a candy cane, spreading goodwill and raising money for an excellent cause.
