Concern fast

We’re getting ready for our annual fundraiser: the Concern Fast.

This year, the Concern Fast has gone all hip. Basically, Concern Fastival 2010 ( is the same as the Concern Fast of previous years, but this time with a twist. While you’ll still be going hungry for a fantastic cause, this year you get to do so in festival-style. It’s the fast that thinks it’s a festival.

Dublin city was covered in red scarves this morning telling Ilo’s story a Kenyan farmer who wraps a red scarf around her skinny body. Ilo often goes days without eating, doing whatever she can to try to forget about how hungry she is. Sometimes she chews on a small piece of bark.

Patrick Kielty, Christine Bleakley, John Daly and Big O have once again lent their support to the Concern Fast.

Who has taken part? What’s it like? When is it on? Where do I register?

Sadly, your summer holidays are almost over. But don’t worry, Concern has lots of fun opportunities for you to hide from the books and get involved with us during the coming school year.
