Barretstown Lunchtime 5k is an annual event to raise money for a wonderful charity. Barretstown camp is a place where families who have been affected by serious illness in children can go and act like a regular family. The camps give families a chance to play and have fun outside of a hospital and enjoy life together.

Visual ID were already in a party mood as it was Yvonne’s Birthday! Donned with decorations, Teddy balloons, sparkles, hats and Hawaiian flower necklaces we set off on a days “work”! The office has never looked better (and still does this Monday morning)!

There was a great turnout from many of the different offices on the campus, up to 300 people! Some dressed in their running gear taking it very seriously and then there were some on our level dressed as super heroes and cartoon characters! The heavens threatened to open a few times but it managed to hold off till later in the afternoon (when we were back scoffing pizzas!!)

The event raised more than €15,000 for a wonderful cause and it was a brilliant day for all! You can see the evidence in a few pics attached!

 

P.S I’m still finding party glitter everywhere..
