Passionate about all things media related. Love filming, love editing.
I am aiming to raise at least 1000 euro for Childline! Get involved by donating to this fantastic cause. Every euro helps.
So many calls go unanswered every year at Childline, you can help us change that.
On the 23rd of January 2016, I hosted a charity 5 a side to raise some money for the cause.
While the event itself went well and was enjoyable, it was very much a hassle to organize. Trying to find a date that suited everyone was very tedious and in the end we only managed to get 5 teams.
That said, 5 teams worked out just fine and 250 euro was raised on the night.
Thanks very much to everyone who took part, and thank you to the MDL for allowing us use of their pitches.
I got in contact with a local gym, 121 Fitness, through my aunt and they very generously offered to hold a special fundraiser event for my cause.
The event was a resounding success and we raised 1000 euro from it.
A lot of effort and planning went into it and I'd like to thank everyone who took part and helped to make the event as successful as it was.
I am delighted to be able to say I've exceeded my target for 100minds.
This money will go a long way to helping Childline and to be able to say I was successful is a great feeling.
The challenge seemed a mountain at first but by putting your mind to it it really can be achieve in 1/2 fundraising events.
The whole process is very rewarding both personally and in the bigger picture, I'm glad I took part and I'd recommend everyone who didn't does so next year!
