CBS Students Help in Fight Against World Hunger UPDATED!

Concern Fast 2017

Concern has announced that the CBS Ennistymon was one of the top Fundraising Schools for the 2017 Fast Campaign.

This is a really outstanding achievement for a school of our size.  However, this extraordinary fundraising achievement would not be possible without the generosity of the local community


The Students of the CBS have had a long history of participation in the Concern Fast under the watchful eye of Mr Gerry Sexton. This Year was no exception and the students made their contribution to the fight against world hunger and poverty raising a total of €2988.55.  This is a remarkable achievement for a small school.


We would like to thank all the members of the local community who contributed so generously at our collection points, and to special thanks to the local retailers who facilitated these collection points.


Attached a letter of appreciation from Concern.  Is worth noting in the letter the low administration percentage Concern apply, with over 90% of fundraising directly supporting their work in developing countries
