The Annual Goal ‘Jersey Day’ took place in Glenstal on Friday the 14th of October. Students and staff were asked to wear their favourite team colours on the day. A donation of 2 euros was suggested for students and 5 euros for staff.

GOAL Jersey Day has been held for a number of years, and is a popular fundraising event with companies and schools across the country. Similar to all GOAL campaigns that target companies and schools, the mechanics are easy to ensure simplicity for staff and students involved. It’s an ideal occasion to boost team or school spirit by working together on an exciting fundraising campaign. Last year, GOAL Jersey Day raised €350,000 with the help of companies and schools.  This year, Goal hopes to reach €500,000.  During the 11:00 a.m. break, Mr Greg Ashe passed around the ‘White Bucket’ to collect donations.
