“I thought it was a very worthwhile charity to fundraise for”

Tuesday March 22nd 2016

Maeve our fabulous Michaela Foundation fundraiser, held a bun sale in aid of the charity at her secondary school Lismore Comprehensive College on Monday 14th March 2016. Maeve’s energy and enthusiasm on the day was infectious, and her baking ability impressive!

Maeve had a team of helpers to assist her on the day, including friends Holly, Adam and Kaitlyn. The bun sale took place during mid-morning break.  All buns went down a treat with pupils at Lismore, and as Maeve rushed to sell to the eager crowd that gathered she said “All the buns were selling out like mad!”.

Maeve looked the part, representing the Michaela Foundation wearing what she noted were “gorgeous” t-shirts. Maeve also commented that the t-shirts created lots of interest with pupils at Lismore who were less familiar with the Michaela Foundation and it’s ethos.

Maeve is a fantastic role model for the foundation and we cannot thank her enough for inspiring other people to be a part of the Michaela Foundation family. “I choose the Michaela Foundation as I knew of it from when it first started. Being big into my Irish and Religion all the values of the Michaela Foundation appealed to me. I knew of its benefits and opportunities to young people and thought it was a very worthwhile charity to fundraise for”. Maeve is delighted with the £70.00 total raised and hopes to organise another bun sale in aid of Michaela Foundation again after Easter!JD

Mrs. P McConnell Fundraising Co. Ordinator at Lismore Comprehensive said “I am delighted that Maeve took the time and effort to fundraise for such a worthy cause. Her participation in fundraising activities within the school is testament to both her caring and charitable nature. Maeve has held many fundraising events over the years for a variety of charities in Lismore with raffles and bracelet selling to name a few. She is an excellent ambassador for the school.”
