Members of the Loreto College Society of St Vincent de Paul have presented a cheque for £1291.58 to Mr Sean McGillan, President of the St Johnís Parish Chapter of the SVP.

The money raised represented hours of effort and enthusiasm by the members of the Loreto SVP, under the leadership of RE teacher Mr Kevin Conroy, and Social Justice Co-ordinator Mrs Lorraine McCool.† The students organised a sweet sale (which proved so popular that it sold out in minutes!) among a variety of activities which got all the staff and students of the College involved.

Speaking on behalf of the Society of St Vincent de Paul in St Johnís, St Maryís Dunboe and St Malachyís parishes, Sean McGillan paid tribute to the dedication, enthusiasm and commitment to the service of others which had been demonstrated by the students and their teachers in raising this extremely generous contribution.

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, commended all the students and staff who had organised and got involved in the various activities throughout the year, which had included sales, bag-packing, visits to a local residential retirement home and the collection of hampers during November and December.
