A fine figure of €60,000 has been raised by UCD’s Ag Soc committee which began fundraising efforts last September for Irish Community Air Ambulance and Hooves4Hospice.

Mystery tours, balls, five-a-side soccer tournaments, raffles and white collar boxing with vets all helped turn the few bob.

The society also has great deals on offer in its student-run shop with tea and a purple snack for 50c.

Sure you wouldn’t get a sucky sweet for 50c in Dublin these days!
