Sponsored Christmas fast and supermarket bag-packing

December 2006

Friends and family of Richard Martin, who died of WPW in November 2004, have been fundraising for CRY in Richard’s memory.

The picture on the left shows two students from Co Fermanagh, who together raised £900 for CRY by doing a sponsored fast on Christmas day. They are Gail Kempton (left) and Leanne Lapin (right), who were both friends of Richard.

On 31st December 2006, at the Asda shopping centre in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh, Richard’s friends and family raised an additional £1000 for CRY by bag-packing. We also had an information stall where the new CRY Northern Ireland leaflets were distributed, with information about the new screening clinic at Jordanstown, near Belfast.

The picture on the right shows two of the bag-packers. On the left is Sally O’Reilly – Richard’s grandmother – and on the right is Lynda O’Reilly – Richard’s auntie.
