IMEX are an Official Partner of Children’s Charity Barretstown

A children’s charity based in Co Kildare, Ireland that provides therapeutic recreation programmes for children and families affected by cancer and other serious illness.

Children aged 7-17 from all over Europe come to the camp to take part in unique programmes, designed to help them recover from the emotional trauma of an illness. They leave stronger, more independent and with a renewed sense of confidence in themselves. Founded by the late Hollywood actor Paul Newman in 1994, Barretstown is much more than a holiday camp for sick children – it is a programme backed by tried and tested medical practices like occupational therapy, psychology and adventure based education to help children with serious illnesses regain their confidence and self-esteem.

Over the years a large number of IMEX staff and partners have been to the camp to work as ‘caras’. To date IMEX have given over 300 days of support!
In 2006 we set out to find something challenging, rewarding, worthwhile and that little bit different as part of our dedication to give something back to the community. After months of searching we found Barretstown. Since then, IMEX staff have supported the project by working as volunteers and have raised over £45,000, to support the charity’s work.

We feel very passionately about Barretstown and when you consider that every year around 1,500 children benefit from the charity we think you will agree that it is a very worthwhile cause. If you would like to get involved or would like more information please contact me, Arthur Pinkney, on 01977 522900 or by e-mail at fundraising@imexpart.com
