Everyone is invited to come together for a magical fairy walk in support of LauraLynn children's hospice.

The event takes place next Sunday, December 16 at 3.30 pm, meeting at the entrance to the Bank Walk, Donegal Town.

Now in its third year, this event is a lovely way for families to take some time out from the hustle and bustle of the Christmas build-up. Everyone can wrap up warmly and come along to the Bank Walk which will be even more magical than usual.

The Bank Walk fairies are looking forward to seeing everyone come along to raise money for very sick children.

One of the fairies told Donegal Now: “It was beautiful to see so many children come to the Bank Walk over the last two years to raise money for the sick children in the care of LauraLynn. We are really looking forward to seeing them all back again this year. And I am sure they will also invite their friends to come too.

"The Bank Walk is a very special place and we really love living here with our lovely fairy doors.”

This event is being run by Donegal Dragons, a local water sports club for breast cancer survivors and supporters. The club is holding this event to give back to the community which supports it through the year.

About LauraLynn

LauraLynn Children’s Hospice cares for children with life-limiting conditions. The team makes sure that the whole family is supported in a positive environment. This in turn allows parents to be Mum and Dad rather than full-time carers.

This service is free of charge for families and so it relies very much on fundraising events such as this.

LauraLynn also works with national and international organisations to ensure that the best possible standards in childhood palliative care are available here in Ireland.

More information on this service can be found at lauralynn.ie
