Sharon Breslin set up the Gary Breslin Especially For You Fund in memory of her loving son Gary, who passed away in February 2012 with a brain tumour. A recent fundraising event included a memorial golf day and a walk to remember Gary.
In September, Foyle Golf Club held a golfing day in aid of the Gary Breslin Fund. Over forty teams took part in the tournament. Fantastic support was provided by local businesses and enthusiastic golfers. The Golf Day raised over £3,000.
A walk around the Foyle Bridge to remember Gary raised over £300. The sun was shining and all participants enjoyed a beautiful day.
Overall the Gary Breslin Fund has raised over £14,000 since March 2012. Gary's mum, Sharon has been a fantastic ambassador for the fund and is an active fundraiser for CLIC Sargent in the Derry area. The money from Gary's fund will go towards the Northern Ireland Appeal to provide two brand new homes from home in Northern Ireland so that families can be close to their child during treatment.
The Breslin family would like to thank everyone who has supported their events in the past months. If you would like to know how you can support Gary's fund visit Gary Breslin Especially For You Fund for more information.
