SHARE ~ Students Harness Aid for Relief of the Elderly

SHARE Students are bracing themselves for the final push in their traditional fast and fundraising campaign for Cork’s older people despite the recent blustery conditions. Wrapped up in their hats, scarves and distinctive yellow SHARE jackets, the students (all 1,500 of them from 20 of Cork’s schools) are enthusiastic and excited about the final few days of their once-a-year campaign.

‘There’s a fantastic spirit among us all and we keep each other going’ said Evan O’ Brien, Chairman of the SHARE Student Executive. ‘I can honestly say that each and every one of the student volunteers is extraordinary in their own right. They are focused on doing the best job possible and people are very generous towards them.  I suppose people know we’ve been doing this for 45 years and know the work must go on, year in year out. We’re learning so much with this experience – the SHARE people teach us so much about life as we visit and interact with them, not just at Christmas but throughout the year’.

‘The local Cork media got behind us big time this week and we would also like to extend our thanks to all of them for their support’ he added.
