They have joined 200 others to help build 2 schools giving children great excitement and hope for their future. The charity implements a two year teacher training programme to greatly improve maths and literacy results tailored to each school.

The next one week building blitz will take place in November 2015.

"People were glad to see us coming and happy to have such a big event run in Downings"

The event, hosted by the Letterkenny 24/7 Triathlon Club, had been in the planning for quite a while.
