Supported by the dedicated efforts of An Garda Síochána, the drive will cover multiple towns in three provinces, allowing the charity to meet and celebrate the Little Blue Heroes ‘Honorary Gardaí’ children at each designated stop.

These remarkable kids are the heart and soul of the organisation, and they will have the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable day with the convoy hosted by the drivers and crew of Bumblebee1000.

This event wouldn’t be possible without the incredible generosity of the public, sponsors, volunteers, and of course, An Garda Síochána.  The group organisers said, “We are immensely grateful for all this support, which enables The Little Blue Heroes to continue their mission of bringing joy and support to children who are facing serious illness.”

“We invite everyone to come out and show their support as we travel through Ireland, spreading smiles and raising vital funds for this amazing charity.”
