Hello everyone, thanks for visiting my profile. My name is Adrienne Kelly and I am currently studying Commerce in UCD. This year, I am very fortunate to be part of the wonderful team which is the 100minds team. As part of this team, I, along with all the other enthusiastic, diligent, and hardworking students will share the mutual ambition, drive and motivation to fundraise in the aid of the very worthy ISPCC Childline charity (https://www.childline.ie/). By reaching my personal target of €1000, I can help ensure that the invaluable service ChildLine provides can continue.
In order to reach my target of €1000, I held two main fundraisers. Fortunately for me, the success of my events along with generous donations generated a total of €1678 for ChildLine. For my first fundraiser, I held a Christmas fairy hunt before Christmas. This fairy hunt, followed by a coffee morning was aimed at children and families, and was a very enjoyable day for all. Prior to the Easter break, I held a Golf Classic in Carlow golf club which was also a huge success - despite the awful weather.
Undoubtedly, I have gained invaluable experience from this wonderful opportunity. Although the task was difficult at times, the motivation and drive given to us from the mentors and overheads paid off significantly, and I enjoyed every single moment of my 100minds journey.
