Raphoe’s Deele College students have signed up for Enable Ireland’s No Phone Survival Challenge to support children and adults with disabilities in Ireland.
On October 23, students from 103 schools all over the country will be taking part the Enable Ireland No Phone Survival Challenge, a fundraising campaign which sees students pledge to spend 24 hours without their phones.
Tara Friel, Wellbeing Coordinator at Deele College said “We are delighted to be taking part in the No Phone Survival Challenge, and to be raising funds to support disability services. Disability awareness and inclusion is hugely important to our school, and achieving the Disability Awareness Shield will really demonstrate that.”
Money raised from the No Phone Survival Challenge will be used to support services to children and adults with disabilities. Enable Ireland provides services to over 7,500 children and adults with disabilities from over 40 locations in 14 counties.
Joanne O’Hagan, Head of Fundraising at Enable Ireland, said “We are delighted that students at Deele College are taking on the challenge, along with over a hundred schools all over Ireland. The funds raised are vital, every year we need over €2 million in additional funding to meet the costs of delivering our services.
“As well as raising vital funds, it’s a great opportunity to promote disability awareness and inclusion, and teachers and students alike have welcomed the opportunity to earn a Disability Awareness Shield for their school.”Tags:
