The students at Wexford School of Ballet and Performing Arts were delighted to do their bit for charity as they presented a cheque for €800 to ISPCC Childline. The money was raised through the school's Christmas show 'Spirit of Christmas' which took place in the Dun Mhuire in December.
Teacher, Suzanne O'Leary said that all involved were happy to help a worthy cause. 'We try to fundraise two or three times a year for worthy causes,' she said. 'We run things like raffles and crazy costume days, but this year our Christmas performance was to raise funds for the ISPCC Childline. The reason we picked that charity is because we have so many kids at the school and we liked the idea of kids raising money for kids. At the school we have children aged from 3 right up to 18 and they were all delighted to play their part.'
The school gave two performances of 'The Spirit of Christmas' and Suzanne says that they went very well. 'They were a great success,' she said. 'Each night we performed to a full house and the audience reaction was great.'
