Cashel Community School students take part in leg wax fundraiser for Bóthar

Supporting the 'Ow for Cow' fundraiser in Cashel Community School were, L/R; Niall Quigley, Mamie Keating, Meagan Lonergan (Beauty Therapist), Liam Fitzpatrick and Ciara Croke.

Recently, 24 Cashel Community School students and staff displayed huge community effort when they participated in a charity leg wax for Bóthar.

Local beauticians Fiona Flanagan, Sarah Hallissey and Megan Lonergan arrived with their hot wax to a room full of anxious students and teachers!

The leg wax provided lots of laughter and a few squeals too as fellow students observed with glee. Teachers Brendan Ryan, John Ed O’Connor, Des O’Connor and Colm Lees donated their legs much to the delight of students.

Sponsorship cards are still being retuned but to date the students have raised €353 from this leg wax, a fantastic response to this great cause.

This combined with the student Christmas dinner means over €700 has been raised.

This money has helped the students reach their goal this year which was to send a cow to Rwanda to transform the livelihood of a receiving family. The students were very proactive this year in their fundraising and now can be very proud of their achievements. A special word of thanks was given on the day to the local beauticians who gave of their time so generously.

The students will be in Leaving Cert when their cow is ready to fly to Rwanda they hope to see the cow before it flies out and mark the day in a special way.

This Social Justice project which was started in the TY Religion classes this year shows that everybody can make a difference and contribute to those who are struggling in developing countries.
