More Donations from Volunteering Fundraisers

As the generosity of the local businesses and community was so great during the fundraising efforts for my volunteering in India, it allowed other donations to be made to two other very worthy causes Marymount Hospice and Millstreet Community Hospital. €910 has been donated to both (pictures below).

I shall send updates during my 10 weeks of volunteering. I have received my itinerary for the first four weeks and I shall be teaching a class of 30 kids in Palampur aged between 10 -15 yrs. I will be teaching English, mathematics, general knowledge and sports to them.

Again a massive thank you to everyone who helped out, took part and donated to these volunteering efforts – Celina.
