TRANSITION Year students of St. Mary's have organised a food collection in the school for the local branch of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
Fourth Year students encouraged everyone in the school to get involved in the Food Appeal by donating food. Students and staff put food hampers together which will be presented to a member of SVP at the annual School Carol Service before Christmas.
Ms. Barry, President of the local branch, spoke to Transition Year students about the work of the SVP and the Food Appeal.
St. Vincent De Paul have recently opened a new shop on Castle Street, Macroom, proceeds from the shop help to provide assistance to families and individuals in the area who may be experiencing difficulty.
