Personnel from Ballina fire station and their counterparts in Enniscrone are set to undertake a flag day collection this weekend in aid of a national children’s cancer charity, writes Orla Hearns.

The collections are being undertaken in association with the National Retained Firefighters Association (NRFA) for Aoibheann’s Pink Tie which was set up in 2010 in memory Aoibheann Norman who lost her battle with cancer at just 8 years of age.

The charity aims to offer practical support to children undergoing cancer treatment and their families and is the NRFA’s chosen charity for 2019.

Ballina firefighters will be “in the pink” to support this cause when they host a bucket collection in the town from 10-4pm on Friday, August 30 and the Enniscrone fire crew will follow suit in that west Sligo town on Saturday, August 31.

It is hoped that the people of both towns will donate generously to the collectors.
