A charity football match is taking place between Little Bray Community Centre and An Garda Siochana on Wednesday, 25th October, at 4pm in the Carlisle Grounds.
This second annual football fundraiser is once again being held in memory of 15 year old Keelan O’Connor who tragically lost his life to Meningococcal B meningitis (MenB) in September 2015.
There will be a bucket collection and raffle at the game to raise much needed funds for Meningitis Research Foundation and Temple Street Children’s Hospital so the local community is invited to attend on the day and support this worthy cause.
There are on average 200 cases of bacterial meningitis and septicaemia- the blood poisoning form of the disease in Ireland every year. Sadly one in ten of those people who contract the disease will die and one in three survivors will be left with life changing after effects as severe as amputations, brain damage or deafness.
