Despite contrary influences in the current calendar year Glenstal Abbey School was nonetheless able to make a contribution to our friends in Kenya – we supplied a classroom. Funds came from the Carol Service on December 2019, the TY Trade Fair and from some reserves we had built up over the years. The students are now very happy to have a classroom instead of having to be taught under trees. Their previous ramshackle classroom had been blown down by a storm. We thank anyone who contributed to the €13k needed to put up the new building and the construction workers and the team in Kenya who brought the project to a successful conclusion. We do hope to have another ‘Kenya crew’ in the near future.
