MAGIC  was in the air when the cast of the Helix Panto presented a cheque for €12,000 to the Barretstown Children’s Charity.

The money was raised from the cast’s designated charity show. 

 This season, the Helix Panto staged a special performance of ‘The Three Musketeers’, starring Ireland’s premier tenor, Paul Byrom (Lord Beautface), Orla Jennings (Daria), Chris Corroon (Dame Lola), along with audience favourites such as Aidan Manion and Colin Hughes, where all proceeds raised on the night went directly to Barretstown. 

 The funds raised will help towards continuing the services and support at Barretstown, which offers free, specially designed camps and programmes for children and their families living with a serious illness. 

All the children and families attending a camp at Barretstown receive accommodation, food and medical assistance, which are provided at no cost to the family.

All the charity’s work is supported by donations and the fundraising efforts of corporate supporters, individuals and community groups.

 General manager of the Helix, Michael Brady, said: ‘We are thrilled to be donating a remarkable €12,000 to Barretstown, a charity that resonates with families who come to enjoy the panto during the festive period. Knowing how much the funds raised will help the charity has given all of us a great sense of fulfilment and pride today.”
