An amazing achievement.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️£10,700⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ For Friends of the Cancer Centre at Belfast City Hospital. We are amazed, delighted and humbled by your generosity, especially given the difficult circumstances we are all currently living through. ⭐️Thank you to our pupils for completing the sponsored walk (in the pouring rain!) and for raising such an amazing amount.   ⭐️Thank you to all parents, grandparents, relatives and friends for your contributions.  ⭐️ Thank you to all school staff for organising everything and also for contributing very generosity to the cause. ⭐️Thank you all the local businesses who took collection boxes and made generous contributions.  ⭐️Thank you to Creighton’s Garages for sponsoring all our wristbands and providing a destination for our Covid-safe walk.  ⭐️ And thank you to everyone who made contributions via JustGiving. ⭐️Finally, a personal thank you from me as Principal of Finaghy PS. As you know, I am a regular customer at Belfast Cancer Centre so this cause is very close to my heart. As said, I am humbled by your generosity, grateful for all your kind words, and  it means a great deal to feel so supported by the school and the whole community.  A cheque hand-over event is being planned once the current Covid restrictions ease and we hope to attract some media coverage.  We know of many individuals within our school community whose lives have been affected by cancer. We sincerely hope you can take some encouragement and hope from this event. Be assured that every penny raised is being used to support individuals and families, as they find their personal pathways to cope with cancer. 🙏
