Thank you to all those kind people who have raised money for NCBI Services!
Sharon Kerr Cork
Sharon has raised a remarkable €1500 for
NCBI. Sharon held a jazz coffee morning
over the Jazz weekend in Cork and also
completed the Dingle half marathon. All
of her fundraising efforts have been done
in memory of her sister Diane Kenny who
worked in NCBI Cork and her late father,
Bruce Aston. A huge thank you to Sharon
for all her hard work!
On Tuesday November 21st a group of
Transition Year students at Loreto, Kilkenny
held a Dine in the Dark event in their school
with the First year students. The event
involved some of the students being guided
under blindfold to dine in the dark, and other
students took part in drawing in the dark!
The TY students also did a presentation
raising awareness about visual impairment.
The event was a big success and raised
some much needed funds for NCBI and the
TY students are planning a bake sale to add
to what they have already raised. A big thank
you to Olivia, Hannah, Laoise, Megan and
Huge thank you to all who took part in
this year’s Trip to Tipp cycling fundraiser.
Another successful event this year. A
massive €24,100 was raised! A special
thanks to Brendan Shields who raised
an amazing €10,250 for NCBI through his
fundraising and participation in the annual
Trip to Tipp. Also, a huge thank you to Billy
& Katriona Shanahan, who organise the
event year on year. The Trip to Tipp is now
in its 22nd year and is dedicated to the
memory of the late Lorraine Shanahan.
