Char­ity walk

Bray People - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

Michael O’Brien, a young man from the Rocky Val­ley and who was in the 2014/15 in sixth class of Kil­macanogue NS last year was re­cently di­ag­nosed with an ill­ness. His friends Roisin Hey­wood and Rachel Grif­fen got in touch with all the class from last year to see if any­one would be in­ter­ested in sup­port­ing Michael by do­ing a 5k walk and it got a great re­sponse. The walk took place from the Par­ish Hall in Kil­macanogue on Bank Hol­i­day Mon­day (2nd) at mid­day and went round the Rocky Val­ley area. Al­most the en­tire class took on the challenge and Michael’s par­ents sug­gested giv­ing the funds made to Crum­lin’s Chil­dren Hos­pi­tal where Michael is hav­ing his treat­ment. €2,250 was raised so far with more to come in and will be pre­sented to Crum­lin Hos­pi­tal in the near fu­ture so well done every­one, an­other ex­am­ple of real com­mu­nity spirit in our lit­tle vil­lage. Fi­nally, best wishes to you Michael, you are a great and very pop­u­lar young man and in our thoughts and prayers.
