In Delgany NS we support a charity every month of the year. The first Friday of each month is €2 and the children are encouraged to bring in €2 for that month’s charity. Some of the charities we have supported in the past include the RNLI, Ronald MacDonald House, Barnardos and Fields of Life. We also sponsor a boy in Uganda and help him to be able to go to school each year. He sometimes writes to us and we enjoy receiving his letters!

Perhaps everyone’s favourite €2 day is in June when we traditionally support Down Syndrome Ireland with their Ice-cream Day fundraising event – yum! This year we had delicious ice-lollies in the sunshine!
