With COVID-19 dampening what we would usually do at Gurteen College to celebrate this festive period, staff and students have decided this year to donate gifts to multiple local charities. Last year we donated a great number of gifts to the likes of Focus Ireland, the Shoe box Appeal and Team Hope, but this year we’ve decided that supporting our local causes would be a great way to show our support.
Of the gifts the College have wrapped ready to donate, a number of them will be taken by Robert Armitage, treasurer and member of the Board of Governors. He is a member of the committee at the Borrisokane Reception Center, which looks after Syrian Refugees – the College will donate 40 gifts to the children of these families.
Rev. Steven Foster, the College chaplain will donate a couple of boxes of gifts on the Colleges behalf to the North Tipperary Development Company. The NTDC runs two creches and the gifts will be going to families in need this Christmas.
Gurteen is also donating to Borrisokane Community College 13 individually requested gifts of which are tailored to each of the students within the school’s ASD centre. A box of gifted toys will also be donated to St Cronan’s in Roscrea. These gifts will be delivered by Dr. Stephanie Scully, Assistant to the Principal. Some toys are also being sent to St Anne’s Community House in Birr; these toys, like the ones for Borrisokane have been selected and tailored for specific children.
Finally, the College is also donating a large hamper to Birr Community Nursing Home. Within the hamper is a selection of board games, plush toys, sweet treats, and some other gifts. This year has taught us that it is not just the young who deserve a gift and generosity at Christmas, after the year we’ve all endured.
Gurteen College are proud to support our local charities and causes, and we thank all the staff and students who have helped us with this project.
