Transition Year students raise €2700 for the Laura Lynn Children’s Hospice

 


The TY stay-awake may have been held on the coldest day of the year but that did not dampen the spirits of the Transition Year students of St. Oliver’s. The event ran on December 8th from Friday evening to Saturday morning and as advertised there wasn’t a wink of sleep on the night.The itinerary for the stay-awake included; Karaoke, pizza, sports games, pass the parcel, a table quiz, a night at the movies and a photo booth, to name only a few items organised by the students. Thanks to our wonderful students and the support of our teachers the event went off without a hitch and furthermore everyone managed to stay awake despite a few sleepy heads going home.  

 Overall, the students raised a whopping €2700 for the Laura Lynn Children’s Hospice.  Students and staff were blown away by the generosity of people and the sponsor cards spoke for themselves. After the event five of the students involved in organising the event were given the opportunity to travel to the LauraLynn house in Leopardstown where they received a heartfelt welcome from the staff there. The students presented their cheque and met with members of the incredible team at LauraLynn who were so grateful for all the students hard-work. This was a fantastic achievement that would not have been possible without the cooperation of parents and indeed all who supported the event.
