IN THE lead up to Christmas, staff and students of St. Joseph’s College, Enniskillen, are raising money for a number of charities with virtual events.

Staff members Ciaràn Carson and Gareth Jones are helping the school with their fundraising efforts this Christmas by giving the gift of music.

Both talented musicians in their own right, Ciaràn and Gareth are also members of popular local band, Full Moon Fever.

On Friday, December 4, the duo will be getting everyone into the festive spirit as they perform a live charity gig on Facebook.

All proceeds from the night will go to the school’s three chosen charities: Enniskillen Food Bank, Action Mental Health: New Horizons, and Pieta House.

Donations can be made via the following link:

The gig will start at 9pm and will be live-streamed via Full Moon Fever’s Facebook page, so tune in for a great night of festive rock and roll.

As the school is unable to hold its annual Christmas Fair this year due to the pandemic, it is instead holding a virtual Christmas raffle.

The school is very grateful to all staff and pupils who have donated so many prizes for the raffle.

Again, all monies raised will go to the school’s chosen charities.

St. Joseph’s staff member Krystle Corrigan said: “Action Mental Health (AMH) is one of three local charities we have chosen to be the recipients of our Christmas raffle proceeds.

“AMH offers many vital services to our community and is available for all ages.”

Tickets for the raffle can be purchased via the school.

“This Christmas, we want to share the true meaning of this time of year – giving back to our school community and surrounding areas,” she added.
