We have dedicated this area to pay special tribute to the extremely generous people who have made a contribution to CRY. It is because of these amazing people that CRY is able to keep our doors open as we do not receive any government funding. All at CRY would like to express our sincerest thanks to everyone who has provided us with support.

Huge thanks to the Management and Staff for giving their time so generously to raise funds and awareness in the Branch on the day.

The 19th November saw friends and family remember Aoife Ward with a 10km walk to "Aoife’s Wood"
- a nice chilled walking pace with no-one left behind.
Aoife died suddenly on the 19th of November 2000 and the day was a lovely way to remember Aoife.
Tracey, Aoife's mom sent us the picture here - showing the incredible support of the walk on the day from family and friends supporting Tracey, Edward and Brian.
Huge thanks from Cry - donations on the day were made in aid of Cry and the incredible sum of €1,835.00 was donated in Aoife's memory. Incredible generosity which allows us to do so much more.

The message below was received from the Fegan Family following on from last week's Table Quiz in memory of Kevin:
We would like to thank our family and friends for coming out in such large numbers to the table quiz in support of CRY Ireland (Cardiac Risk in the Young), held in the Canal Court Hotel, Newry, Northern Ireland last week. Thank you for taking time out of hectic modern schedules. We are so grateful for your efforts in raising £1,300 for a very worthy cause. We also want to thank friends who were unable to come but gave us generous donations.
