The final total raised at our cake and book sale today is €812.52.  All proceeds go to the Evan Hickey fund.

Thank you all.

Cake and Book Sale

A fantastic busy day today at our cake and book sale.  So far we’ve raised a massive €655 for the Evan Hickey fund.  His dad, Joe Hickey very kindly came into the school to tell us about Evan and his illness.  He also gave us lovely certificates of appreciation for all the pupils.  A very thoughtful gesture.

A massive thank you to all the parents who donated cakes and books for the day.  Also to the parents who helped out today since morning, Jeanne, Sharon and Caroline.

Kate O’Hora and Zac Cleary won the Guess the Weight of the Pumpkin competition which was 3kg.

Charlie Skehan was the lucky winner of the raffle for the Halloween cake by Colette Gleeson.  Thank you again to Colette.

Thank you to all for your contributions.

Cake and Book Sale

This Friday the 27th of October we will be hosting our annual Cake and Book Sale.  It will be starting at 11am and will go on until 3pm.  All funds will be going towards Evan Hickey.  Evan is a young Clonmel man who tragically developed a cyst in his brain and urgently needs money for an operation in America to get his life back.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could bring in buns, cakes, healthy treats etc and second hand books to sell on the day.

We hope to see you there this Friday to support a great cause, from the Student Council of Ballyneale N.S. Jack Bourke, Jack Kinsella, Callum McFadden, Lenny Murray and Kate O’Hora.
