Killina Fights Cancer- TY Enterprise Feature

10th February 2020

While all of our TY students are currently busy working on their Mini-Enterprise activities, we would like to profile one in particular because of it's resonance for the lads behind this project, as well as all of us who have experienced the impact of cancer on friends, family or loved ones.  

Well done to Mark, Jack, and Josh- this is their summary of their undertaking:


We are three students in Transition Year in Killina Presentation Secondary School, our names are Mark Leonard, Jack Brickland and Joshua Keating. As part of our Enterprise class we have to come up with a new business idea. 


We decided to set up our Mini Company as an outlet to spread awareness about cancer in our local community by creating wristbands that are themed by the colours of our school.


We know that many people are affected by cancer and so have we, so we decided to do something about it. All profits we make will be donated to the Irish Cancer Society to try and help people give more of a fighting chance. 


We want to thank Rachel McCormack the Enterprise and Youth Coordinator and all the staff in the Bank of Ireland Tullamore for inviting us into the bank to sell our wristbands. 


Please support us and help us to raise as much money as possible to donate to the Irish Cancer Society. Wristbands are €2 each. So please help us in our mission of "Killina Fights Cancer".
