We visited St Catherine’s  School in Newcastle, Co Wicklow, to hand over a cheque for the €18,000 raised at the 2018 GG lunch. It was very  moving and humbling and to meet some of the children and the mothers on the parents association  The school is doing phenomenal work  educating and caring for children with moderate and profound intellectual disabilities, yet it is starkly under-resourced.

The team there will use the funds to create a multi-sensory room. They were very appreciative of what this money has been able to do to help manage the children’s behaviour and create a calming environment for pupils.
