However, organisations wishing to install services such as a phone line or wif-fi connection would have to do so at their own cost.New buildings are added to the list of those available throughout the year.Contact Charlotte Russo, Charity Co-ordinator at Centric Community Projects for details.

I was worried that it would be cancelled but thankfully it wasn’t and it was well worth it.“I absolutely loved it. It was frighteningly exciting. Just as you’re leaning out of the plane, that’s when the second of doubt creeps in because it’s not natural, you’re leaning out into open space. But once you jump then you’re in freefall for a few seconds and you just have to go with the flow. You straighten yourself out then and I was floating down like a frog. It was lovely.”Cllr Sheahan added: “I’d recommend it to anybody with a bit of positivity about them. It’s a very unique way to raise money for charity as well. I would definitely do it again. I really enjoyed it and it was for a very good cause.”The City East councillor, who recently handed over the title of Metropolitan Mayor to Cllr Jerry O’Dea, says he is enjoying the break from “the cut and thrust” of civic events, but promises that he still has “plenty of issues to work on” between now and the next local elections in four years’ time.John Byrnes, vice chairperson of the MWSA, who joined Cllr Sheahan in the skydive with the Irish Parachute Club in Offaly, thanked the former Mayor for his support for the charity during his year in office.The Midwest Spina Bifida Association & Hydrocephalus is a voluntary organisation providing services to more than 100 families.Only 35 per cent of the charity’s funding comes from the HSE so it relies heavily on fundraising; all funds raised go directly towards its services.All its services are free of charge and include physiotherapy, orthotics, counselling for members and family, computer classes, cookery, leadership and self awareness development, summer camps, swimming and art lessons, wheelchair sports and more.For more information, or to make a donation, got to www.spinabifida.ie.

MARGARET WEIMMER To the Editor:As a parent of thee children who attend Henry E. Harris, I was always pleased with the sense of community felt there. This year it has gone to new levels, and the staff at this school should be commended for being such amazing, kindhearted individuals. In January we learned that our youngest would need to undergo brain surgery, at just 7 years old. From day one, the entire school has been so incredibly supportive, from helping us prepare for surgery, home instruction after, and returning to school. Mrs. Kazimir personally assisted us with anything that she could and assured us that she would be there every step of the way for whatever we needed. Mrs. Whitney helped me immensely with home instruction and his transition back into the classroom. From the school secretary to the guidance counselor, everyone made us feel a bit more at ease. We could not walk into the schoolyard to pick up our older children without a teacher or parent asking how our youngest was doing. The support was truly overwhelming and greatly appreciated. Our biggest supporter was his teacher, Mrs. Senerchia. She has helped us and supported us in ways that I could never express my gratitude for. Over the year, she became a friend to not only my 7year-old, but me. Her compassion for her students is what makes her an incredible teacher and what makes parents and children lucky to have her as a teacher. Thank you for being so caring, concerned, and supportive! We could never thank you enough for the gift you have given us this year, in making not only one of our most difficult times easier, but more important, our son’s most difficult journey. BBOED is lucky to have a teacher as wonderful as you.
