Concern Fast: Bundoran’s 26th  Concern Christmas Fast and Street Collection which took place on Wednesday 22nd December was a wonderful success. Fifty four people braved the freezing temperatures to man the six collection points bringing in Є2784 on the streets. The pupils of St. Macartan’s N.S., Bundoran, raised Є400 in their annual December fundraising for Concern. Private contributions, jars of coins etc brought in a further Є2,722 bringing the total lodged to Concern so far to Є5,906. A huge thank you to anyone who collected , donated or assisted in any way. I would like to remember all those who helped with the collection in past years but who are no longer with us. May they rest in peace. Wishing you all health, joy, peace and happiness in 2011.
