Fundraising tips for all the family

Donate to Feel Great – Invite your friends to a picnic at yours. Ask them to make a €10 donation to attend and you’ll supply all the picnic goodies for the day.

Bring your own – Invite friends and family to a picnic and ask them to all bring something. You all make a donation to support Barretstown & to swap treats.

Donate your birthday – Whether it’s your birthday or your child’s birthday, why not host a picnic to celebrate. Instead of presents ask your friends to give the gift of Barretstown to a child with serious illness by making a donation in your name.
