WIT Students Host Fundraiser for New Library Books

Michaella Itaire, Iveta Kazumba, and a number of other students from the FLAC (Free Legal Advice Clinics) Society and Fourth Year Legal Studies class, held a bake sale on Monday April 3rd on both the Cork Road Campus and College Street Campuses. They hoped to raise funds for the purchase of a number of expensive Law books to donate to the library which would greatly benefit the First, Second and Third Year Legal Studies and Law students. They were able to secure donations towards the bake sale from Delahunty Solicitors, Tesco Ballybeg and WIT Students’ Union (WITSU).

Both students and lecturers baked all types of goodies for the sale and raised €660 on the day with a further amount raised through donations. On Monday last, May 22nd, WITSU and the students donated the purchased books to the College Street Library. Funds from the bake sale and generous donations allowed for six books to be purchased: “An Introduction to Irish Company Law,” “Banking Law,” “Arbitration Law,” “The Law of Credit and Security,” “Equity and the Law of Trusts in the Republic of Ireland,” and “Irish Law of Torts.” Deputy Institute Librarian, Terry O’Brien, and Assistant Librarian, Neil Darbey, were delighted to accept these books.

“The bake sale was a simple and tasty way to raise capital and to leave memories” explained Michaella and Iveta. Michelle Byrne, WITSU President, said she is “absolutely delighted to see the students take the initiative to give back to WIT and to help other students. We were happy to be able to assist the students in their donation to the library and helping them with the ordering of the books.”

The students and WITSU would like to thank everyone that helped with the bake sale and donations. After its success, they’re hoping to hold another one during the next academic year.
