Rutledge students shipping off to Shanghai!!

Rutledge Training for Success students from our Derry/L’Derry branch have been given the opportunity of a lifetime; as they prepare to travel to Shanghai in China with the Live Life Lisa Orsi foundation this Autumn. 

The Live Life Lisa Orsi foundation is a newly formed group which celebrates the memory of Derry women Lisa Orsi. Lisa was only 22 years old when she sadly died after falling ill on a volcano trek in Indonesia in March 2015.

The Foundation will take a group of young people from the north-west area to this year’s Asian Gaelic Games which will be held in Shanghai. Our staff will be accompanying our learners on the trip.  

The young people chosen to go to Shanghai are currently fundraising for the trip fees and will be actively involved in the foundation’s ongoing community fundraising activities. The foundation encourages a positive attitude particularly to sports participation and health and wellbeing.

Rutledge Derry/L’derry branch have a number of events planned in the coming months; including bag packing at local supermarkets, a night at the races event, a summer BBQ and much more.

The fundraising so far is a huge credit to our Derry/L’Derry Team working hard and passionately to Maximise People Potential
