14 May St Patricks Society Fundraising Evening
For several years Saint Patrick’s Society has donated funds to CSO and around 10 other charities. CSO was contacted by Orna English the President of the Society and asked to submit an application for funding. There were several other charities bidding as well. We gave an outline of how we would use the money to provide school uniforms, lunches and milk for the children. We expected to raise 60,000 to 80,000RM but on the night we had eight of our children tell a short story about their lives. It was very touching and we ended up raising 160,000RM and had someone donate 100 school uniforms. This has impacted our children and now they have regular milk and food. We also had donations of desks and cupboards. We can’t thank them enough. It was very generous.
