Barretstown Foundation - 2011 SponsorsSaturday, 01 January 2011
For the 3rd consecutive year, we are proud to announce our sponsorship plans for 2011 in conjunction with the Barretstown Foundation. Situated in Co. Kildare, Ireland, Barretstown is a specially designed camp, providing a programme of adventure, activities and fun - backed by the medical world - which helps children with serious illness regain their confidence and self-esteem.
Barretstown improves the lives of children and their families affected by childhood cancer and other serious illness, rebuilding their confidence, trust, self-esteem through therapeutic recreation.
"When I saw Barretstown Castle I knew this was where I wanted the first European [Hole in the Wall] camp to be. I imagined a kind of medieval bazaar where children from different countries could raise a little hell together."
Paul Newman, Founder
