Eimear recognised at Community Awards Eimear Mansfield awarded for her ‘Hares on the March’ initiative


E


imear Mansfield, from Waterford, has been recognised as one of 20 finalists in the 2017 Pramerica Spirit


of Community Awards, the only all-Ireland youth initiative of its kind which rewards post-primary students for outstanding acts of volunteerism and the positive contribu- tion they make in their local communities and further afield. Eimear, a fifth year student at Newtown


School, Waterford, was inspired to volunteer after a visit by Jonathan Irwin of the Jack and Jill Foundation to her school. She was deeply affected by the story of his son Jack and was motivated to do what she could to make a difference to the lives of children and their families. Eimear, with her classmates, set up


an initiative called ‘Hares on the March Waterford’ which was a variation of the existing Dublin initiative. The project was logistically challenging as it involved sending plain hare statues to different schools and youth projects in the area to be decorated by the young people, gaining sponsorship from local businesses, and finally, placing the hares at different locations across the town as landmarks on a 5km fitness trail to encourage activity. To do so, Eimear and the team liaised with primary and secondary


schools, scouted 10 key locations and se- cured permission at high-profile spots with high footfall such as the Waterford Crystal Visitors Centre and Ardkeen Stores. The project raised nearly €14,000 for the Jack and Jill Foundation. The post-primary students, who hail from


all corners of Ireland, will be presented with €500 and an engraved silver medallion at the gala awards ceremony on 23rd March at the


Crowne Plaza Hotel in Dublin with special guest speaker Irish international rugby play- er Jordi Murphy. For more information about the 2017
