As part of a special Christmas news bulletin for Barretstown kids, Bryan Dobson delivered the good news that Santa Claus has been given the all clear for international travel.

Brian also revealed that the Christmas Elves have completed their work in Santa Claus’s workshop and Rudolph has fully recovered from a hoof injury.

The children of Ireland will be relieved to know that Dobson also confirmed that the mystery of the missing list of the good boys and girls for Christmas 2020 has been solved just in time for Christmas Eve.

Throughout 2020, Barretstown, the Kildare based children’s charity, has continued to support and serve seriously ill children and their families through their virtual Barretstown Live programmes, a new innovative and interactive experience broadcast live each week for families in need of some fun.

This Christmas will be particularly difficult for these families as they shield away from extended family and friends. Covid-19 has highlighted the need for virtual programming to serve Barretstown’s existing campers and new campers, who may have been unable to come to Barretstown.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the charity has had to cancel many of its key fundraising events. These events provide crucial income for Barretstown which relies on the public to provide 98% of the funds that make their work possible.
