Seventy-five-year-old Sr Patricia Wall is taking a leap of faith when she skydives from 10,000 feet on Monday May 6 to raise funds for AWARE and Slieveardagh projects. A vibrant community activist Patricia is heavily involved in a number of groups and projects in the Slieveardagh area. The projects support employment, families and communities and provide programmes and activities which offer individuals a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand and safe place to deal with stresses and strains of life especially in the current economic environment. Working with AWARE provides support and understanding of mental health and wellbeing.
The flying nun, as she has become known as, has captured the imagination and support of people locally, nationally and internationally. The project aims to raise €150,000 to support both AWARE and local projects to continue their excellent work. Your support for the project would be greatly appreciated.
