Operation Transformation star Adrian Brereton held his charity walk in Edenderry on Sunday last and a fabulous turn out of over a 100 people braved the cold morning and walked with their local hero to help raise funds for Ofalia House and Irish Autism Action.
Adrian was also joined by Grace and Natalie from the Operation Transformation show as the happy crowd of young and not so young enjoyed the beautiful course walk around the town of Edenderry.
Adrian’s wife Anna and all the rest of TEAM AB which included Josephine, Deirdre, Michael, Wendy and Sally also did the walk and between their combined effort managed to raise approximately €4,000 for the charities.
The walk started from the town hall and continued straight up the town by the church and Ofalia House turning right down to Killane, turning right again at Tommy Walsh’s house and back down Francis Street. It then proceeded left for Dunnes Stores and back across to the Carrick road and back in towards the town before turning left at PJ Foys and finishing back at the town hall.
It was a lovely, safe event as people jogged, ran, walked with the doggies and pushed the buggies.
There were refreshments served afterwards in Finbarr Cullen’s who kindly sponsored those and everybody who went in enjoyed the warm cuppa after the cold brisk walk. Adrian was delighted to see as many people taking part and raise funds for these two great causes.
Adrian presented a cheque for €1,000 to Ofalia House while the balance goes to Irish Autism Action which are currently supporting some families in the Edenderry area.
Ofalia House were delighted with Adrian’s wonderful work and Adrian’s reply was that he was happy to help two great causes.
Adrian was very grateful to everyone who attended the walk on Sunday, to his TEAM AB of Anna, Natalie, Grace, Josephine, Deirdre, Wendy, Michael and Sally, to Des Farrell who provided power for the inflatable gantry and to Finbar Cullen who very kindly sponsored and provided the refreshments after the walk.
