Last year they did a project raising awareness around rape and sexual abuse. The money was raised through various fundraising events. Well done & many thanks to all involved and the hard work put in. The girls who presented the cheque were Gemma Hanlon, Heather Peacock, Katie Kavanagh, Alice Moffitt, Ellen Irish and Katie Ronan.
