19/10/2015 LORETO STUDENTS RAISE BRIGHTER FUTURES FUNDS

A group of Year 11 students from Loreto College Coleraine have worked hard to raise an impressive amount of money in memory of a much-loved friend and classmate.

Niamh McCloskey, who was a Year 10 student at Loreto, passed away last Easter in Great Ormond Street Hospital.  Niamh’s family subsequently set up the Niamh McCloskey Brighter Futures Fund in her memory, to help children suffering from Moyamoya syndrome. 

Students Anna Brolly, Riona Lafferty, Nuala McCullough, Meagan McFeely and Kate McIvor completed the Belfast Color Run just before the Autumn Term began.  Through collecting sponsorship both before and after the event, the girls raised a wonderful total of £2610 in Niamh’s memory. 

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, paid tribute to the four students for their generosity and spirit in keeping Niamh’s memory alive by working so hard to help others.
