A huge thanks to everyone who supported me on my recent fundraising for the Hope Foundation Kolkata (Calcutta) Appeal. There has been overwhelming positive response from the local Murroe Boher community, and I have nearly reached my target of €3,500, that I needed to raise. The funds are going directly to the Hope Foundation and I will visit Kolkata with HOPE next Easter. I would like to thank Fr. Tom and Fr Lottie for the opportunity to speak at the weekend masses and to Willie Carey for coordinating this wonderful appeal. To the people of Murroe Boher, I wish to sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart, for your wonderful support. I could not have done this fundraising without you. Thank you all so much. Kate Madigan, Transition Year Student from Murroe Boher.
