Barnes Family Complete the Dopey Challenge

June 28, 2016 0

Back in December we brought you the story of the Barnes family who were on a mission to raise money for Balbriggan Cancer Support Group.  Mum Catherine was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and the support that Catherine and the family received from Balbriggan Cancer Support Group during this time was fantastic.  We are delighted to report that Catherine is doing great and has been clear of cancer for 2 years now.

There’s one think you will notice about the Barnes family is they always have a smile on their faces.  They are a fantastic family who when dealing with their own adversity wanted to ensure that others could avail of the services of Balbriggan Cancer Support Group.

A big well done to the Barnes family who so far have raised over €3,600  and congratulations on your magnificent selfless accomplishments in putting others first.

In the words of Madeline Bridges ‘give the world the best that you have and the best will come back to you’ we sincerely hope the best comes back to you in spades…
