The Foundation spent the afternoon at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Belfast. We spent more time around the Children's hospital with Jenne and all the staff delivering Christmas selection box's to the many department's throughout the wards as part of the foundation's Christmas Project. In 2016 the foundation gave the Children's hospital over 540 selection box's.This year the Christmas Project 2017 gave a massive 853 Christmas selection box's with a few more still coming in. I'm really stuck for words about the support we got this Christmas.This is just fantastic and the hospital staff are so thankfull.Thank you to everyone who has supported the Foundation's Christmas Project and again this was only possible with your help and support. In loving memory of Lawrence Cadden.

The Eilish Degnan cancer foundation made another special delivery to the Royal hospital for sick children Belfast. Again it was a special day meeting the hard working staff that we all depend on and take for granted.  Special thank you to Jenne and all the staff for your kind words and the tea.Thank you to everyone who has supported the Eilish Degnan cancer foundation, we can't carry out projects like this without your help.

A massive thank you to this young lady Melissa Kennedy who is supporting the Eilish Degnan cancer foundation at the 2017 Ulster grand prix. Melissa has been giving all the guy's a run for their money at all the road races this year and will be there tomorrow for the big event. So guy's give Melissa and all the rider's your support.Thank you to John Tennant and Paul McClean for the photo's

What a fantastic guy, Carl Frampton, he is a world champion and a really caring guy. Carl Frampton supported the Foundation with a very special visit to one of our super heros, Cora and her family from Belfast. They got their dream come true as Carl gave up his time to come and visit

Annual Sponsored Walk 2013


A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped and participated in the Sponsored Walk today. It was a fantastic fun day for all.  We have still lots more sponsored money to come in but today we received and collected a massive £1,010 and this will mean so much to the kids who will benefit this year. We will hopefully have the grand total by the end of the week.


Todays walk was a great success but it was tinged with sadness as this was the first walk that Gerald's father, Big John was not with us. He might not have been there but he was in our thoughts and hearts and was walking every step with us.
