Zim Day
Our annual Fr. O’Shea Appeal for Zimbabwe cake sale and monster raffle will be held this Wednesday, 19th February. We are calling on all the bakers and bun makers in Ballylinan to bake for us! These goodies and treats are always in great demand. As some pupils in the school have nut allergies, please make sure that your delicious baking is nut free. We know that we can depend on your support and that our cake stall will be very well stocked! Please ensure that your containers and lids are labelled with child’s name and room number. Please also give your child a bag or container to bring home their purchases. The money raised will be donated to the Franciscan Missionary Union and will be used to help the children of Zimbabwe. Thank you for your support.
