LauraLynn are holding ‘Thank You Day 2019’ tomorrow (Friday).
On International Thank You Day, the children’s hospice charity will be extending a big thank you to the everyday heroes who have helped them to deliver essential services to children with lifelimiting conditions and their families throughout Ireland.
The charity is thanking one very special couple from Knocklyon, Fran and Arthur O’Brien.
The married couple have been fundraising for the charity since hearing founder Jane McKenna tell her story on the radio about her two daughters Laura and Lynne and how they passed within two short years of each other.
Jane’s story compelled the duo to do something to help and since 2005 they have been fundraising for the charity, just recently surpassing raising €500,000.
Fran O’Brien established McGuinness books with her husband and publisher Arthur McGuinness and has now published several novels to raise funds for LauraLynn Children’s Hospice.
