A pizza party was the highlight of the latest Rainbows group, finishing up last Wednesday at Mallow Community Youth Centre. The young people who were involved were sad to see it finish, but happy that such great friendships have been made during the 12 sessions. The parents of the young people got to see first-hand the work that went on in the session before the young people entertained the parents and facilitators with their singing and musical abilities. The day finished up with the pizza party and a fabulous cake which was brought in by one of the families. A big thank you to all who took part in Rainbows this year. Rainbows is a 12 week peer support programme for young people who have experienced a significant loss in their lives.  The aim is to support the young people in their local communities as they seek to come to terms with grief and loss.  For further information about Rainbows please contact Bernadette, Youth Ministry, CDYS on 086 8353165.
