Welcome to Brainwaves NI


Carol (committee member) and Steve Harris (treasurer) of Brainwaves NI

met with members of Leinster Racing Pigeons; Ian and Joyce Gibb, James and Margaret who have raised the amazing amount of £4175.

They raised the money by selling two racing pigeons along with donations from friends and family.

We would like to thank them very much.

Brainwaves NI was pleased to meet Saskia Fitzimons along with Mum Marina and family and her family.
Brainwaves was represented by Steve Harris, Treasurer, and his wife Carol, also a committee member.
Saskia’s mum has a brain tumour and Saskia organised a tractor run and raised the magnificent amount of £4,070.
Brainwaves attended the presentation on behalf of affiliated charity Brain Tumour Research. Saskia will be organising further fundraising and the proceeds will in the future be donated to Brainwaves NI.

They raised the fantastic amount of £8600 through Virgin Money Giving In memory of Brendan O’Hare, Paula’s husband and Hannah’s Daddy who sadly passed away with a brain tumour.

It would have been Brendan’s 40th Birthday this year and what a lovely tribute.

Very well done to those that took part in the ‘Melarkey Keep Fit Challenge

– 150km (walking, running or cycling) was completed throughout the month of April and finished off with a hike up Culcaigh Mountain
