‘Smi­ley’s Char­ity Events’ was formed af­ter Sean was trag­i­cally killed in a car crash in July 2014. Each year, they hold a Hal­loween fancy dress night for a dif­fer­ent char­ity.

This year’s event was held in the Porter­house on Oc­to­ber 26 and was a great night.

Bray CFR said that they are very grate­ful for the funds, which will be used for three more pub­lic ac­cess de­fib­ril­la­tors for the town of Bray, and two more de­fib­ril­la­tors for use by re­spon­ders when at­tend­ing emer­gen­cies.

‘We can’t thank ev­ery­one enough for their sup­port. We are de­lighted to have some­thing so spe­cial in Sean’s mem­ory,’ said a spokesper­son.
