A Little Goes A Long Way

Pictured above are 6 young Ethiopian pupils whose school uniforms were bought from the proceeds of a Ladies midweek competition which was donated by the Cunnigar Ladies.

As we all know, Amy O’Neill (Mary O'Neill's daughter),  is working in Ethiopia assisting with the educational needs of children in this very deprived area of East Africa. Eager to help in our own little way, we held a fundraising competition last year. The proceeds of this fundraiser were used to buy desks for the school that Amy is involved with.

Recently, when Amy was back home in Ireland, Breda O'Donnell (Lady Captain) gave Amy the proceeds of one of the midweek competitions. This small gesture on behalf of the Cunnigar Ladies enabled the school to provide uniforms for the young pupils pictured above. Fantastic!!
This is what Betty (the Ethiopian lady who works at the school) wrote on the back of the photograph.
