National School raises €5,000 for Beslen victims

A five thousand euro cheque is on its way to those affected by the Beslen school trajedy in Russia after one national school class undertook a massive fundraising effort. 19 students in fourth class in Spa National School decided to raise funds for Beslen after hearing about the tragedy on the news. They set up a home goods market last weekend to raise the money and held a number of raffles. Parent Sheila Gleasure says the children managed the entire project themselves.
