1st, 2nd and 3rd Class School Tour

They attended Just 4 Fun school tour in Institute of Carlow. It was a high energy Fun Activity Day. The children loved activities such as Air Mountain, Obstacle Course, Dash N Grab and the  Disco Dome. Also €2 from each child’s fee was donated to CMR Crumlin. This money is being used to provide “The Giggle Fund” which is used for the children’s birthday parties, cinema and pizza nights and helps create a more relaxing environment for patients during their stay. The children’s donation is funding research in childhood illnesses such as cardiac diseases, cystic fibrosis & asthma so they can understand and limit the effects on children and increase their quality of life.
