IN a bid to raise funds for a cancer charity Tullamore’s Darren O’Reilly decided to grow a beard and assist the fund-raising efforts of the Movember Foundation.
“Darren made the decision during the summer after seeing advertising promoting the Movember cause,’ explained his father Frank.
Added Frank: “He never wore a beard before so it was a new experience.”
And thanks to the support of family, friends, colleagues and even strangers Darren’s efforts resulted in a whopping €3,450 being raised for Movember.
Darren and his family presented the cheque to Holly Greene of the Movember Foundation at an informal reception in the Tullamore Court Hotel before Christmas.
Darren wishes to thank all those who supported his fund-raising efforts.
