YEAR 14 pupils from Omagh CBS bravely agreed to have their legs waxed to raise money for Termonmaguirk Cancer Care in memory of their friend, Conall McCrory.
The Omagh teenager sadly passed away in March after his battle with testicular cancer. The 18-year-old CBS pupil was described as a “courageous young man” who was also proud of his Carrickmore roots. Last week’s charity waxing event was organised by the senior prefects and close friends of Conall under the guidance of Mrs C McMorrow. As well as the extreme pain felt by the students, they put great effort into collecting a total of £925 from staff and pupils.
The waxing took place at lunchtime in front of a captive Key Stage 3 audience.
Omagh CBS senior prefect and event compere, Brendan McSorley, took the opportunity to congratulate all those who took part and on behalf of the group give a big thank you to all who donated.
He added, “Also, our sincere thanks to the beauticians and their tutor, Diane Fox from South West College, for volunteering their expertise. It is much appreciated.”
