There as a great turnout and visitors had  chance to check out the service on offer at the centre and have a chat over a coffee.  On the day Bridie and Darren Carr donated a cheque to the centre which was the proceeds of a raffle from a signed and framed Dublin jersey which was presented to them in memory of dad Joe Carr.  The winner of the jersey Eoin Murphy sold the jersey and donated the money back to the family giving a total donated of €1,000.

The centre is open 3 days a week and Balbriggan Cancer Support Group invite anyone who wants to pop in for chat and find out more about the services that we provide to call in.  We endeavor to preserve dignity and privacy of the person at all times.
