What a fantastic night at Bobby Byrnes, we are delighted to say €1788 was raised at our Quiz night last night that will help us continue our work within the community. Thank you to all our supporters who made it all possible.
Thank you to IloveLimerick and to Richard Lynch and his team for promoting Gateway to Education Quiz night.
“We put the word out there and got a great response. Any books which were in-date, and of use, we passed to parents of school children here in Limerick. Anything which was out-of-date, we boxed and put away,”
We have been gathering and preparing out-of-date schoolbooks over the last two years for shipment to Malawi, where there are only 168 books to each 1,000 students.
A total of 500 boxes were shipped to the African community last Wednesday (6th February), and a relative of a volunteer with Gateway to Education is based in Malawi, where he is doing aid work. Some books will go to schools, others will go to libraries in Malawi.
