On the initiative of some enthusiastic staff members, a day dedicated for charity was organised for the first time at the Wardija Young Adult Education Resource Centre, with astounding success. The beneficiary for this first occasion was ‘Puttinu Cares’.

On Friday, May 27th, several activities were organised at the Resource Centre which included:

  • Car Wash
  • Indoor Tournaments
  • Zumba Dance Session
  • Hairdressing
  • Make-Up and Eye-Brow Shaping
  • Hand Massage

These activities were prepared by some of the staff, with the help and collaboration of many students. The total sum raised from contributions and participation in the above mentioned events, was a staggering €827.98 which was considered to be very encouraging for the first time such an event was held.
