Helen is delighted to be the Barrow Walk Ambassador after supporting the event over the past two years and recognises the importance of the professional support services that FirstLight provides nationally.
Hailing from the South East – Helen is encouraging young and old to take part in the magnificent Barrow Walk to help raise awareness, funds and most importantly, taking the time to remember loved ones along the way.
FirstLight are thrilled to have the support of Helen and look forward to the walk on the 24th September 2016.
The FirstLight for our annual Barrow Walk takes place on September 24th 2016.
We would be delighted if you would consider participating in this year’s event which will take you on a breathtaking walk along the Barrow towpath from Ballyteigelea Bridge to historic St. Mullins.
Registration is €10. Transport is provided from St Mullins Car Park and James Stephens GAA Club,Larchfield at 10.30am to Borris where the walk begins.
Last year the money over €5,000 was raised and this supported families through counselling, residential support weekend, family days, parents and children’s support groups – all of which we were able to provide free of charge thanks to your fundraising and walking efforts!
