"Lets Go Gold for Gavin"

"Lets Go Gold for Gavin"

Jayne's Sister Deborah who is a teacher in Loreto Secondary School in Bray came up fundraising/awareness idea for Gavin.
September is worldwide childhood Cancer Awareness month and Gold is the colour for childhood cancer.
A number of schools and Montessori's in the area have agreed to "Go Gold for Gavin" on Friday 27th Sept. They are having a non-uniform day and asking the children to wear something gold or yellow. We have chosen this colour to try to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer. It can be anything from a yellow t-shirt to a hairband/shoelaces etc!! We are asking for a donation of €2 per child.

The following schools are currently joining in:
St. Kevin's NS Greystones
St. Patrick's NS Greystones
Delgany NS
Greystones Educate Together
Loreto Secondary School, Bray
Colaiste Chraobh Abhann, Kilcoole
Puroga Creche and Childcare
Knockeevin Montessori
Flynnstones Montessori
Greystones Fire Brigade
We are providing all schools with the above posters to help promote the event.

And Eileen Jackson who is the principal of St. Patrick's National School in Greystones has gone a step further and will Dye her hair depending on the highest amount of votes and donations either Silver Stands, True Blue, Nordie Blonde, Hot Pink, Deep Purple or Cherry Red...
If you would like to sponsor Eileen or would like a sponsor card please contact St. Patrick's School
