After a week full of a bake sale, pub quiz, dodgeball tournament and 5k run, over 400 medical students will give up a day of lectures and take to the streets of Dublin in red t-shirts shaking buckets for our chosen charity on Friday the 19th. We will be starting our collections at every Dart station, bus stop and public place around Dublin bright and early at 7am and will be concentrated in the city centre for the afternoon, busking and fundraising. Barretstown is an organisation that offers free, specially designed camps and programmes for children and their families living with a serious illness - supported behind the scenes by 24-hour on-site medical and nursing care. Barretstown is a place of pure unadulterated magic and weekend or week-long stays help hundreds of kids living with chronic illness to rebuild their self-confidence, face up to some personal challenges, reflect on how far they have come, and really have some Serious Fun.
