Kids get paint­ing for Bar­ret­stown

Bray People - - News -

THE CHIL­DREN tak­ing part in an art com­pe­ti­tion at St. Pa­trick’s Na­tional School had all com­pleted their mas­ter­pieces by last Fri­day and the work will be on dis­play later this week as part of the St. Pa­trick’s Au­tumn Fair which is on Satur­day from 11 a.m.

The com­pe­ti­tion was run in aid of the Bar­ret­stown Camp, where chil­dren with se­ri­ous ill­nesses get to go on a pro­gramme of ad­ven­ture, ac­tiv­i­ties and fun with the back­ing of the med­i­cal world.

Bar­ret­stown was founded by Hol­ly­wood ac­tor the late Paul New­man in 1994.

A por­tion of the money raised will also go to the parish it­self.

The theme given to the chil­dren was ‘Se­ri­ous Fun’ which is also the Bar­ret­stown motto. This was the first time the parish ran such a com­pe­ti­tion, un­der the di­rec­tion of par­ent Terry Brock.

The win­ners will be an­nounced around lunch time on Satur­day, with prizes do­nated by the Premier Art and Craft store in Grey­stones.
