Pictures in the Papers

We got some good media coverage for Team World Vision yesterday with pictures in The Star and The Sun and a mention in The Herald as well.
Don't forget you might still catch yourself on tv as Setanta Sports will be showing a special programme on the Flora Women's Mini Marathon on Thursday June 4 at 9.30pm.

A fantastic Day Out for a Worthwhile Cause

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the Mini Marathon yesterday. It was a fantastic day out.

Undoubtedly, the glorious sunshine really helped but I got the feeling that the positive ‘can do’ attitude of all the women would have prevailed whatever the weather. It was very inspiring.

If you have any sponsorship money still to collect, the easiest thing is to gather the cash and then send a cheque, postal order or bank draft of the same value to World Vision Ireland. Our address is;

The Mews
Garland House
Rathmines Park
Dublin 6

The money will make a huge difference to our ‘Women’s Group’ in Sierra Leone helping them to learn a new skill such as weaving or soap making. With these new skills we hope they will be better able to earn enough money for them and their family to eat.

Thank you for your support. It’s very much appreciated.
