You Can Make A Difference

Thank you for helping us bring more children affected by serious illness to camp

Elsie Mae was only two years old when her parents got the devastating news that their little daughter had leukaemia. After months of gruelling treatment, Elsie Mae and her family got to experience our life changing programmers here in Barretstown. This is all thanks to amazing people like you who take part in our events and fundraise to help us to raise the €6.9 million it costs to run our programmes.
“Barretstown has become a magic word in our house. It means joy, it means happiness. But the biggest impact Barretstown has had is to enable us to know that there was something else outside of cancer. There was something else outside of treatment. And that something was fun. It was something brighter to look forward to – a sense of freedom and joy.”

All funds raised go directly to helping us bring more children, like Elsie Mae, to experience the magic of Barretstown. Childhood stops for children with serious illness. At Barretstown we press play on childhood.
