Thanks to her extensive network of colleagues and associates, a very subsantial amount of money (€5,925) was raised. 

Representatives from Liam's Lifts: Triona O'Flynn (chairperson), Yvonne Leahy (secretary) and Nelius O'Flynn (treasurer), were in Cheers Bar, Fermoy last Tuesday evening to collect this most welcome cheque.

Following the presentation, Anne thanked everyone who assisted her with a waxing/shaving event, a karaoke competition and a raffle – all of which were held in Cheers.

She also acknowledged the help of management and staff at Riordan's SuperValu, Fermoy (they held a no-uniform day), she went on to thank 'her own crew in Colaiste an Chraoibhin' (who also organised a no-uniform day) – Anne operates the school's canteen.
