65 Students and five staff from Gurteen Agricultural College once again partnered with the Tipperary Volunteer Centre for a volunteering initiative recently. The group of ‘green-fingered’ students gave a full day of their time to help transform the exterior and gardens St. Cronan’s Assosiation in Roscrea.
After successfully completing a similar project in St. Anne’s Residential Service in Roscrea in January, the students and lectures of Gurteen decided to give their time and skills to the community in Roscrea again in May.
The group came to St.Cronan’s Association on what was a rainy – wet day in Roscrea. However, they didn’t let the weather deter their huge efforts as they volunteered their time doing manual work with different teams of students assigned to different projects.
