Students from Presentation Secondary School in Wexford were polishing their halos after they raised an impressive €1595.32 for the Irish Wheelchair Association.

The charitable students took part in the Angel Day Campaign in November, which required them to sell angel products in aid of the organisation's services. This year, they made much of the funds from angel pins, including the Swimming Angel, Rugby Player Angel and Handcyclist Angel. Their funds will contribute to a number of services within County Wexford such as the assisted living services, community outreach services and rehabilitation training.

Students from the school presented a cheque to representatives of the charity at a special ceremony and 'thank you' day last week. On behalf of the Irish Wheelchair Association, a spokesperson thanked all of the students for their efforts over the past several years.
