Gardai to auction Rachel photo to help ill children

A SIGNED photo of record-breaking Rachael Blackmore winning this year’s Grand National on Minella Times is to be auctioned off in aid of the Little Blue Heroes Foundation, a not-for-profit charity operated by Garda volunteers to make dreams come through for children undergoing long-term medical treatment.
Hospital visits, support, providing holiday breaks and rewarding these heroes with honorary membership of the Gardaí is at the core of what Little Blue Heroes do.
Little Blue Heroes Foundation is a not-for-profit charity operated entirely by volunteers (no paid staff) made up of Garda members/staff, retired Garda members, their families, friends and civic minded people from communities. It aims to help families in need from local communities in Ireland who have children undergoing long-term medical treatment for serious illness.
The name ‘Little Blue Heroes’ came about when Gardai found that the vast amount of the children we support have a strong fascination with police uniform, equipment, vehicles, Garda units, etc.. This has even led some of the children to make a wish to become an Honorary Garda and become part of the Garda family.
