DCU students raise nearly €9,000 for charity following annual 24-hour broadcast

Quite the achievement. Fair play to them.

Last weekend, a number of Dublin City University students produced and released a 24-hour broadcast in aid of the charity Aiobheann's Pink Tie.

Students committed to staying in DCU's School of Communications building, the Henry Grattan, and creating 24 hours worth of content, all in the name of a brilliant cause.

And they did just that.

It has been revealed that they made over €8,800 for the charity, which is made even better by the fact that the target they set themselves was only €7,000.

DCU's Media Production Society, who organise the event every year, posted a message to their Facebook page congratulating and thanking everyone who took part: "If you sat in the PR room and tweeted until you had to convince Twitter you weren't a robot, thank you.

"If you held a camera and held back laughter at someone doing something silly in front of it, thank you. You are the reason the broadcast is a success year in and out and we are so grateful."

Aoibheann's Pink Tie is a charity that aims to support children and families going through treatment for cancer.

The donation page is still open, so if you wish to do a good deed this festive period, you can do so here.
