Here’s hoping that former Clongowes School Captain, Tommy Browne (2010 – centre here) and his three intrepid crewmates enjoy fair winds and following seas as they row (Yes - Row!) across 5000km of the Atlantic Ocean in the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge while also raising money for Cork University Hospital.

Cycle for Paleng Children's Centre Sunday 14th January.
The students who travelled to Lesotho in Easter 2017 have organised a charity cycle to raise funds for the Paleng Children's Centre (paleng.weebly.com/). The boys visited the centre during the trip to Lesotho and were incredibly impressed by the great work being done there to help the children of the valley access education.

On Sunday 14th 2018 the 20 young men will cycle the distance from Johannesburg to Lesotho (550km) in 10 hours to raise much needed funds to help support this amazing initiative. The guys will be cycling on stationary bikes in the concourse from 7am that morning until 6pm that evening. We'd love to see all our Clongowes parents so please feel free to come along and support this wonderful cause directly after Mass this Sunday.

Many thanks,
Lesotho Boys 2017
