The AIB Build-a-Bank Team from Presentation Secondary School Wexford, Brave Bankers, donated €354 to The Women's Refuge, Wexford last week.

The theme for their bank was promoting bravery in their all-girl school community. They raised the money through a music concert held in the school, as well as a coffee morning on International Women's Day.

Three of the team members presented the cheque in Greenacres while attending a discussion panel and networking event in recognition of International Women's Day.

Six girls - Kaley Nolan (Bank Manager), Alannah Davis (Chief Operating Manager), Megan Dempsey, Johanna North, Shauna Whelan Buckley, and Eimear Thomas - participated in the AIB Build-a-Bank challenge which involves setting up and running a school bank that offers students products.
