Haleon Dungarvan’s major fundraiser this year is in aid of The Gavin Glynn Foundation (tggf.ie) which supports families of children battling cancer to travel overseas for treatments not available in Ireland. They are hosting a 24-hour static cycle across both sites in Dungarvan on 10th & 11th October to raise much needed funds for this organisation. The Gavin Glynn Foundation was voted by employees as our major fundraiser as we have a family connected to site who have used their services for a very sick little boy.
The Gavin Glynn Foundation was set up by John & Jayne Glynn -
parents of Gavin Glynn who passed away aged just 4 and a half years
old, on October 21st 2014.
During Gavin’s battle with cancer the Glynn family travelled to several
different countries for specialist cancer treatment for their youngest
Through this experience, they learnt exactly what is involved in
organising transport, accommodating and most importantly - seeking
out the best specialist care available for their son’s cancer. Through
experience, they understand the strain that this logistical organisation
puts on families who are already dealing with huge anxiety and
The Gavin Glynn Foundation believes that all children with cancer
deserve the best care, wherever in the world that might be.
