16/01/2007 LORETO STUDENTS RAISE MONEY FOR SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL

Members of the St. Vincent de Paul youth group at Loreto College together with supporters from SVP in the University of Ulster took to the streets of Coleraine last month in an effort to raise funds for their joint cause.† Despite the poor weather conditions the group managed to raise a pleasing £180, which will go to help all those in need in our local communities this year.†††

In addition to this, the students held a school-wide collection to create an impressive collection of Christmas hampers, to be donated to those in need of such support in the local community.† As a further contribution, over £300 was raised for the Society of St Vincent de Paulís Christmas appeal from the sale of student-designed Christmas cards at Loreto College.

The Loreto SVP Youth group, under the leadership of RE teachers Sr Rosemary Gallagher and Mr Kevin Conroy, has been very active and vibrant in Loreto College throughout the past two years, and the Christmas appeal gathered great support from both students and staff.† SVP youth at Loreto wish to thank all those who donated so generously to their collection and look forward to next Christmas.
