Abbeyleix South National School Parents’ Association is to host an online fundraising auction to help purchase equipment for the pupils.
The Association holds fundraisers every year to support school activities and purchase equipment that benefits all the students.
However, because of Covid -19 restrictions the usual community involvement in the event is not possible this year.
Silent Auctions which have been organised run by the school’s parent’s association in the past have been very generously supported. It is now hoping that parents and the wider community are in a position to support it again this time.
The association, which comprises of Florence White, Sarah Cleary Denise Mezzepelle, Liz Lane, Caroline Whelan, Pat Kirwan, Deirdre Gee, Laura Walshe, Anna Hayes and Caragh Burns Sharma is asking parents and sponsors to contact them with donations before Friday 27 November.
The ‘Silent Auction’ is planned to be held online on Monday 30 November.
