A CHEQUE for €1,400 was recently presented by the Aoife and Aine Kennedy Memorial Fund to Gorey's Ben Kelly and his family, to help with his medical costs.
Ben (9) recently received a second kidney transplant, after his first transplant was unsuccessful. Until his latest operation, Ben was on dialysis for most of his life.
The money was raised at the recent thank you night in Carnew marking five years of the Aoife and Aine Kennedy Memorial Fund. Caroline Kennedy thanked everyone who helped them in any way since they set up the charity.
' The memory of our two little girls live on and we are proud of them and blessed to be able to do so much good in their memory,' she said.
