A fundraiser by LYIT Civic Engagement students has had positive impact on the North West Simon Community and every school in Donegal and Sligo.
The students raised €1,800 for the North West Simon Community following several fundraising campaigns in conjunction with Vincent Butler who has already generated €73,000 for the Simon Community.
The funds will help the North West Simon Community continue to provide early Intervention and Homeless Preventative supports throughout Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo.
Vincent Butler, personally thanked the Students during a Zoom call on Tuesday 4th May which was joined by Patricia Doherty, LYIT Head of Department of Business Studies, Grainne Blaney, Civic Engagement Tutor and Collette Ferguson, North West Simon Community, Donegal Development Officer and, as a result of the Students success, Vincent will donate a free copy of his book – Sixty Photographs for Simon to every School in Donegal and Sligo. https://vincentbutlerheritage.ie/simon-book
Collette, from the North West Simon Community would like to thank all the businesses who sponsored prizes towards the students’ campaign and a special thank you to each and every one for their generosity and support shown to the Students and indeed the North West Simon Community.
