Fundraising in the extreme

Fundraising in the extreme

The Students of IT Sligo set aside all fears when undertaking their extreme fundraising ventures on Monday 28th and Tuesday  1st  last for their Raise and Give Week.

On Monday, more than 20 brave participants, after a brief period of motivational encouragement walked barefoot across a series of flaming hot coals at their Fire Walking event held at the Brewery Bar. While on Tuesday close to 80 thrill seekers participated in the Bungee Jump at the same venue.

A great deal of thanks must go to the Students’ Union for organising both events, to hosts the Brewery Bar, and to each participant who raised a considerable sum of money for the Week’s beneficiaries, the Bill W. Club, the Holy Family Pre-school, and Special Olympics Ireland.
