The team involved in the fundraising appreciate the work that Trócaire is undertaking with their Caritas partner on the ground, to distribute the humanitarian supplies and to see that the beautiful handmade cards that primary school children in the area have prepared for students in Turkey and Syria get to their destination.  They thank all involved , those who gave their time and money, the parents of the school children and all who supported the concert and the additional fundraising activities.
