Transition year students, Sana Gordon and Fia Kelly, are heading to Nepal with leading volunteer organisation Projects Abroad to work in schools and orphanages during the summer of 2015.

As part of their fundraising drive, the enterprising pair will be photographed wearing West Cork business’s  branded t-shirts while working in Kathmandu and the images will be sent back to the various companies to be used to used in promotional activities.

Peter Shanahan, owner of Fresh Fish Seafood Deli in Rosscarbery and Clonakilty, has been quick to sign up to this unusual form of sponsorship. Peter, who was recently featured on RTE One’s series, The Taste of Success, commented “It’s great to think that our fish cakes will have reached the foothills of Everest. I wish Sana and Fia all the best for their fundraising and hope that other West Cork businesses will get in behind them.”

The girls have further fundraisers planned for the New Year, including a bingo afternoon being held at the West Cork Hotel, Skibbereen on January 18, and a pub quiz in Nolan’s Bar, Rosscarbery.

Businesses interested in joining the campaign, or individuals wishing to make a donation towards this cause, can find details online at http://www.gofundme.com/hymq3g
