Philanthropist's fundraising tour of Depaul projects ends at Willesden Hostel
On Friday 22 June, American philanthropist and ambassador for Depaul International, Loralee West, roared in to Depaul UK's Willesden supported housing project on a motorbike as she successfully completed her fundraising tour of Depaul projects in Ireland and the UK.
A passionate supporter of Depaul, Loralee’s first fundraising challenge, a sky dive, raised over $100,000 in 2010. For her second "Leap of Faith” she decided to ride pillion on a motorbike – something she’d never done before.
Loralee said, "The Depaul projects are different in every city and country. There are no two alike. That is what impresses me so much about their mission. They go into a region and research what the greatest need is for the homeless and work toward making it happen.”
Paul Marriott, Chief Executive of Depaul
