Ciara's Dad gives to Blind School

Earlier this year this blog reported on the battle to fund the education at the Royal Blind School in Craigmillar Park of Ciara McGearey.   Ciara, now 13, lost her sight when she was only a few days old and, although she attended the Royal Blind School for a time, moved away when her soldier father was posted elsewhere.

Although the Council and the Army eventually agreed to share the costs of her specialist education, her father Mac McGearey, had already embarked on fundraising events.  Now the money he raised is, in part, to be donated to the Royal Blind School.   Details here.
