Rosie & Jim are pleased to share they have donated €2000 to a Malin Head to Slea Head Cycle Fundraiser for DEBRA Ireland
Conor McGarry and his 2 friends came up with the idea of cycling from the top to the bottom of Ireland over 3 days (25th - 27th June, 2021) – from Malin Head in beautiful Donegal to Slea Head in the wilds of the Dingle Peninsula. They decided to harness this challenge by raising money for DEBRA Ireland. DEBRA Ireland is an incredible charity which supports children and adults living with the painful, genetic skin condition epidermolysis bullosa (EB). Inspired by our fellow Laois person, Emma Fogarty, who is a Patient Ambassador of DEBRA Ireland, EB means that Emma’s skin is as fragile as the wings of a butterfly. There is no cure or treatment and for Emma the only way of controlling the wounds is constant bandage changes every second day.
