Run down schools, crowded class rooms, lack of resources and virtually no sport are all part and parcel of a young persons life in Tanzania, Africa.

Irish volunteers Aisling Quigley and Anna Moore have set about changing the experiences young people are faced with in everyday life. Their work is delivered via Camps International and the core project is based around improving educational infrastructure at the local primary schools and improving village life as a whole.

The main focus currently is on building a classroom for students with special educational needs. Presently they are learning alongside mainstream classes and they are unable to succeed, as their educational needs are so different.

Desks and furniture making are also a high priority here with more than four students trying to squeeze onto one desk so making plenty for all students to sit comfortably will bring great advantages to their learning.

In Tanzania, structured sports education and inter-schools competition is virtually non-existent due to a lack of resources and time. The main issues are sport and P.E. are not part of the National Curriculum, lack of sports teachers, run-down or non-existent school and community sports pitches and facilities, lack of school sports equipment and student kit and gender inequality. Aisling and Anna will be working on sports development and hope to try and develop an area to facilitate their needs.

As a result of the donation Rosie and Jim, Ballybrittas made Aisling and Anna can now carry out volunteer work in Tanzania, which will make a real difference to communities.

Rosie & Jim are delighted to support St. Conleth’s Ladies team again this year and are very pleased to donate €1,500 to the club.

Rosie & Jim recently sponsored a Gold Classic in aid of There's Something About Mary O. The fundraiser was to help Mary and her family access the best possible cancer treatment not available in Northern Ireland.

Mary is a vibrant member of the Cullyhanna community in Armagh. Both herself and her husband Gerard are great characters and well loved within their local communities. They have regularly fundraised for charitable organisations and therefore their family and friends have set up this non-profit organisation.

In May 2015 Mary was diagnosed on her 42nd birthday with Breast Cancer. Mary remained extremely positive throughout her chemotherapy and surgery, many call her an inspiration! Mary was just returning to normality when again on her next birthday she received the dreaded news that her cancer had spread to her liver. Mary is currently receiving eighteen weeks of full body chemotherapy and long term monoclonal antibody treatment. Unfortunately side effects such as extreme tiredness, mouth ulcers, nausea and hair loss are now taking its toll on Mary and her family.

Mary and Gerard are parents to six children ranging from four up to thirteen years. However they are no strangers to heartache after losing their baby to a congenital heart defect in 2006. Baby Eoin joined the other angels in heaven just after two days old. Throughout all this heartache the couple are hugely positive and are truly inspirational people. They are best friends and have recently celebrated their 21st Wedding Anniversary.

This Young, Vibrant Lady deserves the best of care and treatment to return her to better, if not long term improved health. The fundraising will help to cover costs of alternative remedies and further treatment unavailable locally and not routinely covered by NHS.

Rosie & Jim are delighted to have the opportunity to sponsor such a great cause.

Rosie & Jim are thrilled and humbled to sponsor Make A Wish Ireland in making Eimear's wish of having a Safety Sleeper come true.

Eimear's mum Fiona, sent in a lovely letter explaining how much this would improve Eimear's life.

We are so grateful as a family to get the safety sleeper gifted to Eimear as it especially changes holidays for us as family. Since getting the safety sleeper we can now like any other family decide to go on holidays, and we have gone during the summer and just last weekend, and Eimear has slept and enjoyed the holidays as much. As life can be very busy for us and challenging at times it is great for us and especially Eimear and her siblings to get away for a break. Now that we have the safety sleeper it gives us a new peace of mind and the option of a holiday.

Angelman Syndrome means that Eimear has severe complex needs, including sleep disturbances, sensory processing disorder, epilepsy, non verbal, short attention, no sense of danger/lack of sense of security. So for safety reasons she requires an enclosed bed.

Thanks for the lovely letter Fiona, Dermot, Alannah, Eimear and Jason.

We wish you many happy night's sleep in the new Safety Sleeper Eimear and hope you get to try it out on holiday soon :)
