ACET Fundraiser – Cork to Calais Solidarity

Throughout the past few months, we are all saddened by images of displaced women, men and children arriving in Europe, fleeing their native countries due to violence and oppression. In light of the current humanitarian crisis, a fundraiser was fittingly organised by ACET’s Camille to raise money for the Cork – Calais solidarity volunteer group.

Over 60 people were in attendance at the quiz that took place last Thursday 24th in Clancy’s Bar. ACET students, staff and friends, both old and new came together for an entertaining night with quiz master Tony. An impressive €1,165 was raised between the quiz entry fees and raffle. The proceeds were donated to a local group of volunteers that will travel from Cork to Calais bringing with them supplies and aid for those living in dire conditions in the port town of Calais.
