Barretstown helps children affected by serious illness regain their confidence and self-esteem. They rebuild lives affected by childhood cancer through a program of fun based activities in Barretstown House in Co Kildare. Hospitals' primary focus is on the physical effects of serious illness, while Barretstown helps to heal the emotional scars.
In 2011 Barretstown welcomed it's 21,000 camper . All Children and families go to Brretstown free of charge. Each year the charity's dedicated fundraising team must raise Euro 5 million, so that more children and families can attend these life changing programmes.
96% of this money must come from voluntary sources including individuals, community events and corporate partners. IPASS is delighted to be able to use National Payroll Week as an opportunity to raise funds for the marvellous work carried out by Barretstown.
