The Charities

The two charities are 22q11 Ireland (click here to learn more about 22q11) and Cork Simon Community (click here for more on Cork Simon), both of which do fantastic work in their respective fields.

No doubt most of you will have heard of the Simon Community, though I suspect a large majority of you will not be aware of 22q11. That is because it is ‘the most common rare disease never heard of’. Please look at their site and do what you can to raise awareness of the condition and the charity.

That said, in our view they are both equally deserving of your support and both are utterly relevant to remembering Conor.
