Big-hearted pupils from St Clare's primary school in Harolds Cross have donated their confirmation money to orphans in Moldova.

Alex Grogan, one of the sixth class pupils who recently made their confirmation, came up with the idea after taking inspiration from her granddad.

The class from St Clare's teamed up with students from the CBS on James Street and used their funds to purchase boxes of baby products and other gifts for the orphanage.
