Rays of Hope Ethiopia is a local charity run by 2 women, Berni and Mary McGreevy. They donate their own money and some from donations or charity events to two Ethiopian causes.
The Blythswood Shoebox Appeal has been sending gifts to families in Eastern Europe since 1992.
De La Salle High School students of Year 12 & Post 16 have raised over £200 in donations and have been able to put together over twenty gift boxes for young men of their own age to receive a welcome gift at Christmas, providing many practical gifts like pens, books, and toiletries.
The students hope that their efforts and generosity will make the Christmas of some young men of their own age who are not as fortunate as they are. This is in keeping with the generous spirit as encouraged by St Jean Baptiste de la Salle.
Martin Russell of C Russell Auto Sales Downpatrick recently presented De La Salle Head Boy Conor Hackett with this 58inch Smart TV for their recently upgraded Post 16 Study. The Study is a unique and much used resource that allows Post 16 students to focus in a purpose-built learning environment. With the addition of this very generous purchase, C Russell Auto Sales have increased the capacity for students to learn, deliver presentations, and access whole group online services.
De La Salle Post 16 would like to thank C Russell Auto Sales for this resource.
