We are doing more with your support! We are proud to announce our latest charity donation of €2000.00 to Barretstown.
At IGate, we pride ourselves on working closely with our charity partners to support the
amazing and much needed work that they do!
We are delighted that we have chosen Barretstown as our charity partner. We are also delighted to have
the opportunity to start giving back to such a special organisation who are very dear to us.
Barretstown is a specially-designed camp in County Kildare, that provides Therapeutic Recreation
programs for children with serious and often life-threatening illnesses and their families – supported
behind the scenes by 24 hour on site medical and nursing care.
The camp offers children and their families the chance to take part in a range of adventurous activities in
a fun and supportive environment. In 2023, it will cost €8 million to run their therapeutic camps and
programmes. All of the children and families come to Barretstown free of charge. Everything, including
accommodation, food and medical assistance are provided at no cost to the family.
Volunteering at Barretstown really is an unforgettable experience: Volunteers at Barretstown are
known as Caras, the Irish word for friend. Barretstown volunteers help support and encourage each child
to take part in all aspects of camp, while making sure they’re safe and supervised at all times. And most
importantly you will help them to have fun! We urge anyone who has some spare time to consider
volunteering with Barretstown, It is such a rewarding experience.
Barretstown is supported by donations and the fundraising efforts of corporate supporters, individuals and community groups.
We are looking forward to raising more much needed funds for this special charity, providing them with as much support as possible.
