Last Sunday, 6th July, Helen Clarke (leading light in our music group) ran in a sponsored run (the JP Morgan City Jogging) in a team of 11 people, raising funds for the Illula Orphanage Trust, a charity in which she is personally involved, serving orphaned children in Tanzania. In an appeal at Mass on Sunday (not pre-announced), over €430 was donated to the Trust. Including money donated at St Alphonse, Helen’s team has raised over €1,530 for the project. Helen will be working in Tanzania for 3 weeks in August.We forgive all the runners for the traffic disruption suffered by those trying to get to Mass! Photos of the race, and the project, to follow. Congratulations to Helen and the team! Fr Ed
