Post Leaving Cert students from the marketing and film and TV courses at Galway Community College gave willingly of their time last week to work with leading Irish musician Damien Dempsey and Colm O’Brien, the MD of Ireland’s largest school lunch supplier, Carambola Kidz Healthy Lunches Delivered, to help children in The Philippines.
The group travelled to Dublin to support the work of O’Brien and Dempsey in promoting the work of PREDA, a Philippines based children’s charity, and filmed Dempsey’s concert for the second class students of St Cronan’s JNS in Brackenstown, Swords. The visit was arranged as a prize for the St Cronan’s students who were among the winners of PREDA’s Freedom Day photography competition.
The GCC PLC students hope to have this exclusive footage online in the coming weeks.
For more information on the work of PREDA check out www.predaireland.org or find PREDA on Facebook.
