For over five years Daisy Lodge has been providing short therapeutic services to families with a child battling cancer.
Unfortunately, Daisy Lodge (Newcastle, Co Down) can only provide one out of seven families with a short therapeutic break and due to increased numbers, they are now looking to build a centre in Cong, Co Mayo.
With the support of well-known golfer Rory McIlroy a stunning new site near Lough Corrib has been purchased, planning permission granted and the building design completed. Opening this centre will allow up to 1000 families to avail of therapeutic services where they can come and let their hearts, minds, and bodies rest and heal.
Ballyvary Hurling Club is a juvenile club that has a mission of teaching values and culture of the game of hurling.
Faye Reilly is one of the club members. She recently completed a tough two and half years of treatment for leukaemia. On returning to play with the U7 age group she launched an upcoming virtual event for the club which will run during the June bank holiday weekend (June 5-7). The club feels that Daisy Lodge is the perfect fit to link in with their annual fundraiser.
The club has organised a ‘ 5k to 10k’ Your way. – Walk, Run, Cycle, Climb, Swim!’ All funds will be split between the club and the charity.
