Student Council present cheque to Barretstown

Hi Scoil Bhríde

Childhood stops for children with a serious illness. At Barretstown, we Press Play on childhood.

Thank you so much for your recent generous gift of € 1,000.00 to Barretstown.
Thanks to you we’ll be able to bring more children to experience our life-changing, medically endorsed, Therapeutic Recreation camp and programmes.

I often see children as they arrive at Barretstown. Most of them don’t know what to expect. Some are nervous or even scared… but I wish you could see these children as they’re leaving camp. They’re re-energised and happy. There’s a spring in their step they didn’t have when they arrived. They’re different … literally transformed.

That’s because, perhaps for the first time in months or even years, they don’t feel like sick children anymore.

On behalf of Barretstown I cannot thank you enough for helping to make this magic happen.

Thanks to the support of people like you, children attend our camps and learn what it means to have fun again, to be a child again and they rebuid their self-confidence. That’s the magic of Barretstown!

And you make this magic possible! You see, more than 98% of our funding comes from supporters like you. Caring people who want to help children living with or recovering from cancer and other serious illnesses.

On behalf of all of us here, and especially the children and families who benefit from our camps.

With my warmest wishes,

Karen Reid
