02/10/2015 LORETO COLLEGE CONTRIBUTES TO REGUGEE CRISIS APPEAL

Students and staff from Loreto College Coleraine have responded to the recent Refugee Crisis Appeal, with donations being gathered by the College’s Justice League, co-ordinated by Mrs Lorraine McCool.

Essential items were gathered throughout September, and were donated to the Northern Ireland Refugee Crisis Appeal at the end of the month.  Alison Torrens, the Portstewart Representative of the NI And Borders Appeal group was delighted to accept the Loreto College donations, which were so sizeable that the bags filled an entire minibus.  In addition to clothing and other essential items, Loreto students collected £465 for the appeal through collections at school Assembly.

The items collected will become part of a shipment to be sorted in Ballymena and shipped to Kos and the Greek Islands during the first few days of October.  In total, the shipment which included the Loreto donations filled three 40ft lorries.

Alison Torrens paid tribute to the entire Loreto College community for the generosity of their donation, while Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, thanked Mrs McCool and the Justice League for co-ordinating this activity with such dedication.
