On June 17th we shared the Skehan Family story – Jennifer Campbell had organised a fundraiser to mark her Dad Jimmy Skehan turning 70 on June 4th. Family & friends took on a challenge to complete 70km on the day, but Jimmy’s daughter Hannah, in London, put the pressure on early getting in a 22km run!
Ultimately Jen, her family, her sister Katherine & her family in the USA, as well as family and friends in Dublin, clocked up 140km!
Over €5,000 was donated online and last week Jen and her parents Jimmy and Anne paid a visit to the Centre to share the amazing news that the online donation was matched! Further donations were generously made and the total donated was just over €20,000.00.
Huge thanks to the Skehan family for choosing to support our work & THANK YOU to your extended family, friends & colleagues for their generosity. We are incredibly grateful.
