Quiz Night – Surgeon Noonan

Two local girls, Jennifer Lenihan and Gemma O’Regan, both 4th year medical students in UCC are hosting a pub quiz this Friday February 2nd in the Bush Bar.

Gemma and Jennifer are heading to Africa this summer to volunteer in hospitals in Malawi and Zambia as part of Surgeon Noonan, a charity run by UCC medical students. Each year, UCC medical students volunteer in rural hospitals in Sub-Saharan African hospitals. Gemma and Jennifer will fund the travel and other costs themselves. All the money raised through this fundraiser will go towards purchasing medical equipment and supplies, which the girls and their classmates will carry with them to the hospitals.

The UCC students raise approximately €150,000 each year. In recent years, this money has been used to fund hospital renovations and medical supplies, with one hospital even purchasing an ambulance last year.

All and any support will be greatly appreciated for this fantastic cause!

  1. Jennifer and Gemma, I hope the quiz was a success and that the trip to Malawi and Zambia goes well. I turned up at 7.50pm to say hello…but I had forgotten to check on millstreet.ie so I didn’t realise there was a time change. Whatever about the good work you’re bound to do in the two African countries, you’ll be given a wonderful welcome I’m sure. Well done again! John Magee
