Transition Year students raise funds for worthy causes

THE staff and management at Kilkenny Rape Crisis Centre (KASA) wish to thank all of those involved for the fundraising efforts of the Transition Year students which resulted in a donation of €5,000
“This is very much appreciated and will greatly support the services the centre offers,” a spokesperson for KASA told The Kilkenny Observer.
A cheque was presented to KASA by two girls who championed the work of the KASA school programme. They are Ailbhe Murphy and Oriel McDonald who presented the cheque to Geraldine Butler, KASA Schools Programme Co-ordinator.
Also present were Dr Brendan Lee, KASA Board of Management, Elizabeth Delehanty, KASA Board of Management, Mr Richard Butler, husband of the late Ruth Butler who developed the KASA schools programme and Mr Jeremy Clarke, Head of Transition Year, Kilkenny College.
An essential element of any Transition Year in Kilkenny College is fundraising for charity. Covid aside, this year saw TY students fundraising for two charities; KASA and New Growth. Both charities were chosen after all students presented for a cause they considered were worth supporting. Kilkenny College students and staff managed to raise an incredible €10,000 for two charities through a series of Christmas fundraising efforts.
Students and teachers in Kilkenny College organised many activities including a Christmas jumper day, a fun run, an online market, baked good hampers and a candy cane distribution. A total of just over €10,000 has been raised by all these activities.
