This October, breast cancer awareness month, a group of TY students have volunteered to be involved in an outreach project headed by local woman Elaine Doolan. The aim of the project is to provide some comfort for those receiving chemotherapy. Elaine is looking for sponsorship for "Chemo Care Pouches", in order to buy and fill little pouches for those receiving treatment. The pouches will be filled with little things to help brighten up patients days, e.g. cosy fluffy socks, moisturizer, eyebrow pencil etc..
The 4A group together with their Religion teacher Ms R. O’Brien and Elaine are going to gather, pack and present these pouches to patients in the CUH at the end of the month. It is such a worthy cause and such a simple gesture. If any one wishes to get involved please let us know.
