Trees For Cliona

Post date: Mar 20, 2021 3:24:45 PM

Since 2006, the Callanan family and friends have organised the Clíona Callanan Memorial Orienteering Event in Doneraile Park to raise funds for the Children’s Leukaemia Association. Sadly, this event like so many others couldn’t happen in 2020.

So in 2021 the Callanan family are embarking on a new project.

March 21st to 27th is National Tree Week and in normal times there would be lots of wonderful planting events taking place during the week. This year everything must proceed on a more low-key basis.

However, during National Tree Week the Callanan family will be undertaking their own magnificent planting venture.

They are hoping to plant 300 native trees in their field to mark Clíona’s 30th birthday, which they celebrated in January. Throughout the week, they will be planting Alder, Birch, Crabapple, Hawthorn, Hazel, Oak, Rowan, Scots Pine, Wild Cherry and Willow.

You can lend your support to this beautiful and fitting tribute to Cliona by visiting their GoFundMe page at the following link:

All money raised from this project will go to the Children’s Leukaemia Association.The Children’s Leukaemia Association supports and assists families in every way possible during and after their child’s treatment for leukaemia and other cancers.
