The community of Balbriggan has rallied around one of its most valued charities in their time of need and have been hard at work raising funds to aid the recovery of Balbriggan Cancer Support Group after heartless thieves broke into their headquarters recently.

Progressive Credit Union has recently stepped up to the plate and donated €5,000 to the charity which was presented by Sean Staunton, the credit union's CEO and received by a very grateful Tom Quinlan and Cora Nelis of Balbriggan Cancer Support Group.

Cora told the Fingal Independent, the charity is extremely grateful to Progressive Credit Union and the whole community who have been raising funds for the charity since the robbery.

A recent soccer friendly between Glebe North and Balscadden FC raised €1,000 for the charity and Tesco in Millfield Shopping Centre in Balbriggan, donated a lap-top to the cause. At the weekend, Balbriggan Golf Club raised money for the charity at their Captain's Day. Cora says the charity is now 'fully back in business' and thanks the community for their incredible support.
