The LYIT Student Union annual Christmas Fair took place on Tuesday 3 December, 2013.
The idea of the Fair was specifically to raise funds for under privileged student families, many with young children, who are struggling to cover the cost of Christmas.
The Fair played host to many regular fair exhibitors, who sold various treats and creations, which ranged from hats and scarves, to honey, apple jelly, chutneys and greeting cards, gift labels, jewellery and fashion accessories.
A modest €1 student admission (€2 staff/outside public), was the entry, which entitled all those who attended to be included in a free draw.
€1,664 was raised and this fund will be made available to those most in need by the Chaplaincy Office, at LYIT.
