Cancer steals the magic and fun from childhood. You can give it back. At Barretstown we have created a magical world, where children, like Darragh, can come to get a break from their illness and rebuild the confidence cancer can take away. Where they can experience the incredible wonder and fun of being a child again and the therapeutic benefits that brings. Your generosity can help unlock that world for another child, like Darragh. There is no better gift to give this New Year.Sprinkle Magic

What is Barretstown?
At Barretstown we run onsite residential camps and programmes for children and their families affected by serious illnesses like cancer, as well as virtual, school and hospital outreach programmes for all those who need us.
Our families are given a chance to unwind, destress and enjoy quality family-time together in a fun, safe and relaxing environment. Since opening our gates in 1994, we've been there for over 70,000 children and their families, and we'll be here for you too.
