A memorial event was held in honour of Limerick lady Anne Byrnes, who tragically lost her battle against cancer in September 2012 at the age of 50.  Anne had worked diligently for CARI a charity that provides therapy and counselling services for children who have experienced sexual abuse and had dedicated much of her life helping the children who attended CARI.  Anne was known as the face of CARI in Limerick and she fundraised tirelessly, even from her sick bed. Anne’s established the annual walk in Turkey and ran it successfully over many year’s and it’s because of this that this year they are dedicating this year’s walk to her. A memorial plaque and a marble table and chairs were erected in the garden of Cari House in Anne’s memory and her daughter Sarah was on hand to cut the ribbon. Anne’s family, friends and work colleagues attended the event and it was a very special day in honour of a very special lady.

In September 2013 CARI once again plans to take on the Turkish countryside for 7 days for their annual fundraising walk from September 21-28. Accommodation will be in the welcoming Green House Studios on the beautiful Gumbet, Bodrum region.  A registration fee of €80 secures your place (it’s limited to 20) and simply raise the minimum sponsorship to take part. Cari will help you with ideas on how to raise your money.  If you would like further details please contact Helen in their Limerick office on 061 582200.
