We got a talk from local entrepreneur Emma Murphy from Balloon HQ; she
also supplied us with balloons on the day. Different groups took turns
speaking to judges and visitors at our stand. Our stand was quite popular and it received a lot of compliments. Our project was shortlisted for the “Creative Pioneers” category, although we didn’t win, we had a great day. The award ceremony was at 1:10pm.
Overall we made a €350 profit. Every child received €10, or €12 if they invested €2. We donated €70 to the HOPE Foundation, as we were learning about it for our Confirmation. The programme was very fun and educational.
