Hannah’s 24 Hour Walk Fundraiser for Helping Hand

  On Tuesday 12th May 2020, a catastrophic RTC occurred on the Whitepark Road, Ballycastle, which claimed the lives of Hanna Smyth’s mother and little sister aged 3 years.

7 Half Marathons in 7 Days

A huge shout out to Ciaran Toner who has ran 7 Half Marathons in 7 Days for the RBHSC 😀 Raising £2,103!

I would like to do this for them, as our family are so grateful for all the help and support they...

Helping Hand is an independent Charity which operates through a board of trustees and fundraises exclusively for “The Children’s Hospital”.   By supporting Helping Hand, you will be helping to purchase vital new equipment to diagnose and treat the...
