17/12/2009 LORETO COLLEGE MAKES DONATION TO SAMARITANS

The Social Justice Group from Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, made a donation of £1362 to the Samaritans, Coleraine, on Tuesday 15th December.

With its Coleraine branch based on the Lodge Road, the Samaritans is a well-known organisation which offers 24/7 counselling to those suffering from distress or despair, staffed on a voluntary basis.  It was represented at Loreto College by Mr Geoff Whitehead and Sr Anne McWilliams, who were presented with the donation of £1362 by Loreto College’s Deputy Head Boy, Andrew Crozier, on behalf of the Loreto Social Justice Group.  The money was raised through collections and raffles at the College’s annual musical in October, which was carried out by members of the Justice Group.

The members of the Social Justice Group, along with their co-ordinator Mrs Lorraine McCool, were delighted to be able to offer this contribution to the Samaritans, and were praised for their generosity and commitment by Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College.
