Huge thanks to Jacob and his Dad Reuben who recently organised a huge toy collection for less fortunate children! Jacob you’re a star!

Brows for Barnardos launched in June this year for the third year in a row with over 100 salons across the country taking part! All salons generously donate 20% of the cost of all eyebrow treatments to Barnardos for ten days. Huge thanks to all our supporting salons and beauty spas! Check out the lovely ladies from Killarney Toning and Beauty below and some tasty looking cupcakes made by Embodyment Salon in Carrick-on-Shannon!

Happy Birthday Olivia! Olivia asked friends and family to donate pyjamas, pillows and slippers to help less fortunate children for her 5th birthday. Some of the gifts have already found a new home. Huge thanks to Olivia for warming our hearts and the lives of the children we work with.

Clubs all across Ireland took part in our “Play for Barnardos” in April/May this year, raising over €1000! Thanks so much to everyone who participated, including our supporters at St Brendan’s Park Football Club, Tralee pictured below!

Gillian Duffy of Moate, Co. Westmeath, turned 50 this year and decided what better way to celebrate than by holding a birthday walk in aid of Barnardos- the March snow didn’t even stop them and Gillian and friends raised a fantastic €1,200 for Barnardos!

Olympian Gymnastics, who run gymnastics classes all across South Dublin, held a Cartwheel-a-thon for Barnardos and raised over a whopping €20,000 for our services! Huge thanks to Neil Gissane, Ashwin Kesso and all the staff and club members of Olympian for making this possible!
