Nicaraguan Fundraiser: Table Quiz
Friday, 20th of February
Local man David Higgins is heading to Nicaragua this summer for a 6-7 weeks to work with UCD Volunteers Overseas. As part of the project he will be teaching in the town of Somoto, in North West Nicaragua. Education in Nicaragua is very poor with 1 out of 10 Nicaraguans unable to read or write and only 29% of children completing primary school. Money raised will go to both teaching resources and constructional projects in the town of Somoto. He is hosting a pub quiz in Hotel Castlepollard on Friday the 20th of February. All support would be greatly appreciated.
