Swim­mers team up for Gavin Glynn fundraiser

Bray People - - ABOUT GREYSTONES -

THERE WAS a great turnout in Greystones on New Year’s Day for the Team Gavin Glynn swim in aid of Greystones Can­cer Sup­port.

Greystones boy Gavin has Rhab­domyosar­coma, a can­cer­ous tu­mour of the mus­cles that at­taches it­self to the bones.

Last year ‘ Team Gavin Glynn’ braved the cold weather and had a quick run and dip in the sea to raise funds for St. Johns Ward at Crum­lin Hospi­tal.

This year their sup­port was a bit closer to home. ‘We all know some­one who has been af­fected by can­cer, and GCS has been an amaz­ing sup­port to our fam­ily since Gavin’s di­ag­no­sis,’ said his dad John. ‘ This year we would like to try help GCS and other lo­cal fam­i­lies that may need help.’

Greystones Fire Bri­gade came along on the day, and ev­ery­one en­joyed soup and sand­wiches pro­vided by the Beach House.

They haven’t yet got a to­tal amount raised by the fundrais­ing drive as funds are still coming in.
