The Build it for Liam Campaign received another welcome financial boost on Friday last, 10th February when the presentation of two cheques took place in St Mary’s National School, Threemilehouse.
As previously reported, the fund was set up last year to aid a local child who suffers from a debilitating genetic illness.
Four-year-old Liam Hagan from Threemilehouse suffers from Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) which leaves his skin paper-thin and causes it to break and blister at the slightest touch.
The Build it for Liam Campaign is hoping to raise over €30,000 to build Liam a bedroom and medical area that will be fully adapted to meet his medical needs.
Work on the build is well underway and including the money received last Friday over €24,500 has now been raised. This initiative is being driven by the Hagan family and the DEBRA Ireland charity.
 Threemilehouse Community Playgroup which Liam attends presented a cheque for €1,027 to the fund while St Mary’s National School raised €753.
The playgroup’s donation was the proceeds from a successful Christmas raffle while St Mary’s N.S held a Christmas concert in aid of the Build it for Liam Campaign.
 Speaking to the Northern Standard, Fundraising Manager with DEBRA Ireland Susan Woodcock extended sincere thanks to everybody who has donated to the campaign so far.
“Huge thanks to everybody who has got involved. It has been such a community effort and we are very close to our target.”
Donations are still being accepted and the charity page set up for online donations is still open –
