“I would like to everyone for their generous donations to the Irish Red Cross and Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland. Together we raised €455 in aid of these two wonderful charities which I think as a college we should all be extremely proud of.”

“Yesterday’s event displayed the significance of teamwork and the kindness amplified by all students and staff throughout the college. I hope you they enjoyed the delicious treats, music, and ‘bake-off’!  I would like to personally thank everyone involved in the college and those got involved in the running of this event, I couldn’t have done it without their help.”

The YSPI provide vital funding that is used to help save lives.  Donations were made on the day and still be made online via https//
