Who is Woolie?
Woolie is the new Good Shepherd mascot; he will be visiting schools across the Archdiocese telling children about the Good Shepherd Appeal and the Community Services supplied by Nugent Care to the most vulnerable people in our community.
Woolie has many ideas for fundraising but is always pleased when children come up with wonderful ways of raising funds for the Good Shepherd Appeal. If you are struggling to think of an idea take a look at Woolie's Fundraising Ideas sheet and the A2Z of Fundraising booklet downloadable from the bottom of this page. We've also attached a sponsor form for you so it couldn't be easier.
