Fundraising for Make a Wish Ireland

Posted on : April 28, 2020

The 5th year students who are National finalists in the Irish Angus Competition have not stopped working on their project. As well as looking after their calves they are taking on a fundraising challenge. Here they explain just what they are doing and ask for your support: “Please help us fundraise money for Make A Wish Ireland by donating to our GoFundMe page. As a team we decided to fundraise for Make A Wish Ireland as becoming one of the five finalists in the Certified Irish Angus Beef schools competition was our wish and it came true! We have had the opportunity to experience so many amazing things in this competition and we are so grateful, that’s why we’d like to give the opportunity to a child with an illness to have their wish come true. Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus our planned fundraisers have had to be postponed but with your help we can still fundraise money for Make A Wish while staying safe at home!”  To donate, click HERE
